In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should Be Shot)
It is 6pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-aleck teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults - the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage?! With outrageous characters, laugh-a-minute-dialogue, and a surprise, heart-felt ending - Mr. Franco has created a comic treasure that is sure to leave your audience in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
Salem, Virginia, at Theatre Glenvar High 20 Nov 2010
