When Connie Lattimore goes for an interview for the Hostess Position at one of the city’s up and coming restaurants, she discovers that she was at high school with the man who owns the restaurant chain.  Times have changed and Connie, who was once a cheerleader and the most popular girl in school is looking for employment with the very man, Lonnie who once idolized her back in high school.  However, Lonnie hasn’t let go of the past at all.  In exchange for money, Connie allows him an hour of her time to talk about the past. But instead she finds that Lonnie is hell bent on humiliating her.   A tense drama for four actors in which the power shifts continually throughout the play.
