This hilarious play, by Marshall Karp, pits a father-in-law against a mother in a comedic succession of squabbles.
Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not so happy Abe Dreyfus, Jerry's curmudgeon of a father in law. Abe is a funny guy to the audience, not to Jerry. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry's mother Mildred looses her house in a fire and needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can't stand each other. This play is one hilarious confrontation after another until the heart warming finale in which the oldsters discover that, really, each is not so bad.
Production dates at the Ramsdell Theatre: Aug. 9 - 10, 16 - 17 at 7:30 pm and on Au. 11 and 18 at 2 pm.
