PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

What do you do when your mother’s up a tree? Twyla Potts knows—you call the fire department. After all, she was in the same predicament exactly one year before when her mother, Ariel, took to the branches on her wedding anniversary to her late husband, Howard. But when the fire captain arrives without a ladder and claims to be an invited guest, Twyla is beside herself. Actually, she is normally beside herself; overly demanding, acutely stressed, and chronically unhappy. Her brother, Toby, doesn’t seem the least bit concerned. Her son, Tommy has no problem sending bottles of beer up to Grandma. And worst of all is Ellie, Ariel’s older sister who lives with one foot in la-la land by Twyla’s standards. Everyone around her seems to be preparing for some special event and the people and birds keep coming despite Twyla’s commands otherwise. There is a revelation ahead that will transcend the laughter with a gentle reminder that one seldom knows the story of the old lady down the street, even when that old lady is your own mother. Whether you believe in the mysteries of the after-life or just enjoy the possibility of mystical wonders, you will love this funny and overwhelmingly touching story.
