One might argue there’s dysfunction in every family. Then there’s the Todd family — a father who abandoned his alcoholic wife, a son who became a lonely workaholic and a daughter whose career thrived, but marriage failed, and you’ve got a recipe for conflict when they unite.

But add to the mix the ‘other’ woman and an escort hired to pose as the son’s fiancé and the laughs and drama come fast and furious.

Why is dad coming to visit? How could he abandon his children? Why does Joe have to hire an escort? What will Carrie say to her father? What about René, an unemployed single mom on her first date as an escort and desperate to put food on the table for her nine-year-old daughter?

Tickets purchased in advance cost $23 for adults, $17 for children, $33 for cabaret seating; or $25, $19 or $36 at the door. Tickets are non-refundable.
