AUDITION: Things My Mother Taught Me

Presented by The Majestic Productions (Adults 20+)

A COMEDY BY KATHERINE DiSAVINO

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20th at 6:30pm 
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26th at 7:30pm

Performance Dates: February 7-9, 2020 at the Executive Court.

SYNOPSIS:

Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day doesn’t go exactly as planned, though, and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up to help! Can a two-bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry, and wisdom that’s about to happen?

This comedy from the author of Nana’s Naughty Knickers takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents are passing their best lessons on to their children without even meaning to. Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

DIRECTED BY BECKY RUSH
