This hilarious revue takes a wry and knowing look at the stressful holiday season.

This hilarious play pits a father-in-law against a mother in a comedic succession of squabbles. Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles that is married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not-so-happy Abe, Jerry's curmudgeon father-in-law.
