Life-changing events hurl a mother and her son into the unexpected. High School senior, star athlete and popular, 17 year old Billy Hayman’s actions forever change many lives – most profoundly his mother’s. With pathos, humor and understanding, “That Wasn’t Me” brings a highly sensitive issue onto The Players Stage and explores its effects.
