This delightfully tender and funny play takes you smoothly through several years of holidays with a typical American family. The Mother, Father and three grown children with their hopes and dreams. As time passes, the family discovers that, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations. As Woody Allen once said “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans”.

The matriarch of the family. She starts the play in her late forties or early fifties and ages thirty years as does everyone. She’s bossy, authoritative, means well but tries to steer the world more than is humanly possible. She needles each of her children and even her husband, Bill, to an extent but at bottom, way down there, truly loves them all.
