Mama Won’t Fly
by Way Off Broadway Community Players

May. 30 - Jun. 21, 2014

An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding.  Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly.  With only four days to make it to the ceremony, she has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother in Mama’s car.  However, the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced and is convinced that traveling together is the perfect way to bond.  As the journey begins, comedic chaos ensues.

Several mishaps, including the theft of their car, a near-fatal encounter at a museum, the accidental homicide of a Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked 18-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas.  As the misadventures multiply, the trio develops the urge to ditch each other along the way.

In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new part for their won relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family.  This ferociously funny family-friendly comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!
