This play of acceptance and inclusiveness is set at Thanksgiving at the home of Maggie Anderson and
 Jerry Collins. Maggie is expecting her gay son Adam and his new boyfriend (also named Adam) for the Holiday. What she is not expecting is a surprise visit from her fundamentalist daughter and her new husband. Maggie must walk an hilarious tightrope in order not to offend either of her children, who seldom see eye to eye on any issues. Add to the mix Jerry's married daughter and her husband, who are going through a crisis of their own, and the table is set for both laughter and tears.


"A beautiful and timely holiday tale of family and acceptance" Joe Franklin, Bloomberg Radio.
