This sophisticated comedy of modern manners deals with the empty nester's greatest nightmare: the chickens coming home to roost.
Affluent, newly-widowed Marjorie is enjoying life sitting by her pool when both her married, grown up children come calling, both with the same plan: to come home and live with Mom. When Marjorie's reply is a succinct "No", they can't believe it.
Family chaos ensues, sibling rivalry reaches alarming proportions, brother-in-law begins to lust after sister-in-law and even the water in the pool turns murky.
Eventually Marjorie has an epiphany which takes everyone by surprise and gives her a new freedom and a new life.
The surprise hit of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's '95 season, this comedy addresses very real and current issues with crackling wit and sometimes controversial reflections on American society in "this day and age".
