From Off-Broadway

Set in the fictional suburb of Rancho Viejo, a couple can't bear the thought of their son and daughter-in-law's marriage troubles. No more than they can bear their awkward neighbors, or life in general. Dan LeFranc's anxious comedy ponders life's big questions while his characters try to avoid existential exhaustion.

"Magnificently strange and welcoming...The play is consistently funny throughout, wringing laughs from social awkwardness and non sequiturs as people negotiate each others’ egos or vie for dominance." - Time Out NY, Read More
