Show synopsis This is a story of longing, missed opportunities and the unravelling of the quintessential American family. Henry Powell still lives and works in the same non-descript north-eastern town where he was born and raised. Compared to some, his life has been lucky, if inauspicious: a glorious senior year of high school, a football scholarship, an undemanding job that pays the bills, a roof over his head, friends to share a beer with on the weekend. Yet Henry is impossibly stuck, unable to reconcile the dreams of his youth with the reality of the unassuming, man he's become. Called home from college by family tragedy, Henry's life is on pause. It is Baxter's, the men's clothing store where he works, which provides Henry's only window to the world passing him by, where he marks time by the milestones in his classmates' lives, where his daydreams reveal the Henry that might have been. Humorous, achingly sad yet perpetually hopeful, "Everything Must Go" is a powerful exploration of a life that has yet to be lived.
