Drama. By Elizabeth Dewberry.
Cast: 1m., 3w. Two southern sisters, one dead father, one canceled wedding, and a knife- all part of a recipe for family trouble in this darkly humorous drama about people who understand their shared past so differently that they can't connect in the present. Crystal has canceled her second wedding and returned to her mother's home for a makeshift dinner instead of a reception, and family tension is running high. Her mother, her sister and her sister's husband all try to help ease her pain, but when comfort fails and talk won't yield to understanding, they find themselves facing their own discontent- with themselves and with each other. The disclosure of family lies brings this play to a shattering conclusion as it poses painful questions about what family values are, what the value of family is, and how history repeats itself from generation to generation. Unit set.
