A Nice Family Gathering
by Phil Olson
Producers: Barb Jones & Bruce Williamson
Director: Colleen Simm
Stage Manager: Lori Moritz
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 Dad died. At the gathering, Dad comes back as a ghost with a mission: to tell his wife of 35 years that he loved her, something he neglected to tell her while he was alive. The problem is, she can’t hear or see him. The trouble begins when Mom invites a date for dinner.
A Nice Family Gathering is that rarest of all plays – a fun
evening that is both comic and tender. There is genuineness to the
script that is quite unusual.
