Kate Sterne is a promiscuous teenager with a bad
reputation. When she is raped by “teacher of the year”, the only witness to the act is fellow student Willy Keyes – who is autistic. That’s What It’s All About follows the relationship between Kate and Willy as they grow and learn from each other. The story also examines Kate’s relationship with her single father Gary – who has trouble understanding why Kate is the way she is – and Willy’s mother Nadine, who conceals a tragic secret. Other characters that affect the lives of these disabled characters include: Judge McGraw, Kate’s clueless ex-boyfriend, Willy’s Special ED teacher, Willy’s absent father, and Willy’s Grandma
Margaret – all played by the male or female ‘Greek Chorus’. Learn what it means to “never judge a book by its cover”, to love unconditionally, and cherish every day and every relationship in your life – no matter how seemingly insignificant.
After all, That’s What It’s All About.
