Additional Info

This is an exchange of outragous and hilarious letters between an overbearing mother and her 31 year-old runaway son. In this love/hate relationship, Sheldon blames his mother, Mrs. Levine, for breaking up his marriage and ruining his life. His mother can't understand why something so trivial should bother him.

Share in the angst, the aggravation, the madness, and the mail of two people, who although thousands of miles apart, are still too close to each other for their own good.

NOTE: The play is constructed so that it can be performed either read, memorized or a combination of the two.
