Over the River and through the Woods
by AcTAG

Jun. 06 - Jun. 11, 2016

It’s no secret that grandparents love their grandchildren. In fact, many Sun City residents moved here to be close to their grandkids. Over the River and Through the Woods is a delightful, heartwarming and funny play about family and the lengths they will go through to keep their family intact.

Grandson Nick, age 29, announces his desire to move to the opposite end of the U.S. for professional advancement. To all four of his grandparents, who have already lost Nick’s sister and parents to distant cities, this announcement makes no sense. The weekly family dinners become a comic dance as the grandparents try everything, including inviting a single young lady, to entice him to stay.

This play was written by Joe DiPietro, (also author of I Love You, Your Perfect, Now Change) and it ran Off Broadway for 800 shows. This production will be directed by Morgan Fogelman. A limited number of seats will be available for sale at the door.

From Dramatists Play Service:

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. The job he's been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare as bait…we won't give the ending away here.
"A hilarious family comedy that is even funnier than his long-running musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change. —BackStage. "Loaded with laughs every step of the way." —Star-Ledger.
