MAKING GOD LAUGH is a comedy that takes place in four scenes, each 10 years apart, set at various holidays. Starting in 1980, the newly-launched kids — a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former star football player — all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty nest parents contend with their own changes too, as old family rituals and dubious recipes are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. Over the course of 30 years’ worth of celebrations — Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Easter — we see how, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations. As Woody Allen once said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
Written by Sean Grennan, MAKING GOD LAUGH will be presented Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 2, 7 and 8, 2018 in the Hirt Theater at 205 Maple Street. It contains mild adult language. It is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
Tickets are $15 for adults 18+, $10 adults 60+, and $5 children/students through grade 12. Tickets go on sale Nov. 16.
