Synopsis

A comedy about a sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous, aspect of life today—the fact that people don't listen anymore, that people don't hear each other. In the deft hands of playwright Gleason, we see a family together but each one entirely in his or her own world. The point-counterpoint as each follows a separate line of thought is truly hilarious, but there's a poignancy under it. These people who won't or can't hear each other are losing the ability to communicate. The mother, anxious to reach her young people, turns to a psychiatrist for help—only to discover that he can't "hear" either! There's a final effort in which they try to involve themselves a little with each other and a wry, witty conclusion.

Customer Reviews

"Perfect for a young group. Small cast. Fast paced comedy."
Review by Sharie Miller, Devine ISD, Devine, Texas
"The minor parts are all very well written ... there isn't a "bad" part in the whole play."
Review by Pete Nett, Corning High School, Corning, Iowa
"Delightfully funny. Reminds me of my own home ... today. With as busy as people are today, it was fun seeing life from the other side of the table."
Review by Tiffany Morgan, Avalon I.S.D., Avalon, Texas
"The audience enjoyed the show. It has some great dynamic characters for the students to play and I think the message is clearly observable, without being heavy handed."
