    This rowdy and raucous new comedy, directed by Summer L. Williams (Intimate Apparel, By the Way Meet Vera Stark) introduces, and reintroduces, the O’Mallery familyas they gather in a public park for an intervention with their sister, Zippity Boom. James T., Lillie Anne, Marie, and Adlean are the kind family that comes to such an occasion armed with a Taser, even though they're all worthy of their own interventions. Audiences will never guess all the surprises in this piercingly funny new play by Robert O'Hara (BootyCandy).

     

    “Easily one of the funniest plays of the year!  Plot [twists] that are so unbelievably bizarre and amusing  that they really need to be experienced first-hand! “  Theater Mania

    “Turns the American domestic comedy on its head!” —  Variety
