"Squabbles" aka "Your Place or Mine"

This hilarious play pits a father in law against a 
mother in a comedic succession of 'squabbles'.
Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising 
jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. 
Living with the happy couple is the not so happy 
Abe Dreyfus, Jerry's curmudgeon of a father in law.
Abe is a funny guy to the audience, not to Jerry.
The situation is exacerbated when Jerry's mother 
Mildred loses everything in a fire and needs a place
to stay.  Abe and Mildred can't stand each other.
The play is one hilarious confrontation after another.
until the heartwarming finale in which the oldsters
discover that, really, each is not so bad.

Performance dates are:
April 28 - 30 and May 5 - 7
Evening performances are at 7:30pm and
Sunday Matinee at 2pm.
