Each of the eighteen scenes, which range from the comic to the serious, explores the dynamic relationships of family life. Rather than the scenery changing around the characters, this play is unique in that the characters change around the scenery.
Filling out the cast is Beth Alexander, Emily Ham, Jason Lang, Justin Owens, Jane Clair Tyner and Chris Wooten.
Tickets are $10 and should be reserved by calling the JORT box office at 601-583-7778. The play is rated PG-13. Seating is limited.
