As part of the Write Down Detroit series, Write-A-House presents a staged reading of a new play by Sally Jane Kerschen-Sheppard, directed by Kennikki Jones [play sponsored by Detroit Pulse Theatre]. "It'll Do" is the story of Neve Blanco, who has been living in the same roadside no-tell motel her entire life. She does her best to run the motel and take care of her ailing, resentful stepmother, but when her property taxes suddenly go up, she fears she will lose the only home she's ever known. When Will Brend, the popular golden boy from high school, reappears after ten years, Neve believes he has the power to rescue her from her circumstances. But Will is not the prince charming he once was, and as he tries to find redemption, Will discovers that he can't even rescue himself, let alone anyone else. Neve is forced to face the reality of her situation, and sets out to forge her own path.
