We close out our 15th Birthday Season with a birthday party in Mom’s Gift featuring a hilarious ghost whose quest for a peaceful hereafter will light up the theatre with laughter!
In this comedy with a heart, Mom has been dead for 11 months and shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission. Like Clarence in It’s a Wonderful Life, she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings, only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her anger management program. One by one the family's secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.
