About this event
"A gem of comic relief...this new heartwarming comedy has everything going for it. Making God Laugh has a dramatic and honest story of real people layered with a hoot of hilarity, yet the show is so meaningful that one has tears of joy by show's end." - Betty Mohr, Chicago Sun Times Making God Laugh follows one typical American family over the course of 30 years' worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie & Bill's grown children -- a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former football star -- all return home: we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty-nester parents content 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. As Wood Allen once said, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans...." Comedy/Drama (Rated PG): This show contains some material not suitable for children. Parent guidance is suggested. Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
