        Big Day Out For the Goldbergs, A         Don't Leave Me Now         Good and the True, The         Where's Your Mama Gone?



Big Day Out For the Goldbergs, A

Synopsis:
Only an hour's show, this is the story of the two daughters of the Goldbergs. they are a Jewish family, with all the 'proper' intentions for their girls despite the wayward path of their father, who has run off with a new girlfriend and children. the older daughter Lucille (elisa Boyd) has found herself engaged to a rich, if selfish, man, and as the big day looms she begins to wonder if she has made the right choice. However the story centres more clearly on the story of the rather more colourful younger daughter Michelle (Emma Gordon), who, with a tongue piercing and a taste for acrobatics, is all ready to run of to join the circus. In her case she really is running off to the big top, but it's to circus school she's headed, ready to carve out a heady career in clowning and children's parties. Will her hystErical mother accept her choices or will convention restrict the happiness of both daughters? Breaking the norms will certainly be a big day out for the Goldbergs.
