Making God Laugh



Making God Laugh
Written by Sean Grennan
November 5 - 22, 2020
There is a quote that says “God laughs at the plans we make” and we couldn’t think of a better show to open our season during this changing time.  This comedy follows one typical American family over the course of thirty years' worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie and Bill's grown children -- a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former football star -- all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty-nester parents contend with their own changes, too, as old family rituals are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. As time passes, the family discovers that, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations.  “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans…”
