July 13 – August 18, 2018

Set in a small Texas town, this comedy stages the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically as well as mentally disabling stroke. They’ve wanted their father’s love, but they’ll settle for his money! Winner of the LA Weekly Theater Awards for Best Production and Best Playwriting. It is not so much the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.
