A Nice Family Gathering
- "A Nice Family Gathering is a story about a man
who loved his wife so much, he almost told her. It's Thanksgiving
Day and the first family gathering at the Lundeen household
since the Patriarch died. At the gathering, Dad comes
back as a ghost with a mission; to tell his wife he loved
her, something he neglected to tell her while he was alive.
After all, they were only married for 41 years. The problem
is, she can't hear or see him. The trouble begins when
Mom invites a date for dinner."
NOTE: A Nice Family Gathering will
not be performed at the HCOPAC. VENUE TBA.
