In her dilapidated Southern California mansion, Gertrude Hopper rules over her adult children and illegal servants with an iron fist. With a fortune in her bra and a maternal instinct warped by the profit motive, Gertrude plans to marry off her son and farm out her daughter's womb to a wealthy widow. Her plans run aground, however, as her children make a final, desperate bid for love and independence in this twenty-first century reinvention of Molière's classic comedy The Miser.
"The characters are deftly drawn, the comedy builds to hilarious peaks…Wilson's update of Molière is cogent and cautionary." —San Francisco Chronicle. "As compelling as it is relevant. Very witty and very unorthodox…" —LA's the Place. "A very contemporary comic romp…Pulls no punches…" —BackStage West.
