It’s Janet’s 50th birthday. This year there will be more tension than usual because not only is she turning the big five oh… her whole family will be coming home to celebrate with her. Her sharp tongued mother, Florence; her younger sister, Charlene the ‘cougar’; her soft spoken niece, Angel, who has some big news to share; and of course her strong willed daughter who she never seems to see eye to eye with, Jessica, will all be in attendance. Her husband, Norman, will also be there of course and a visitor that no one expected who brings with him more conflict than Janet had anticipated. Will it be a HAPPY birthday or a CRAPPY birthday? Either way it’s sure to be a birthday to remember.
This hilarious musical comedy explores the many facets of the wonderful and sometimes-difficult relationships women have with each other. Celebrate with the amazing women in your life as you laugh together and discover the true yet complex beauty of Mothers and Daughters. A must-see for men too. Who knows… you might learn something.
