A Canadian play in honour of our 150th birthday.
Its 1956, one ordinary family, one extraordinary day: Hilda and hubby Sam are recent empty-nesters, keen to enjoy life after raising two children. Their hopes are symbolized by a brand-new television set Sam purchases, visions of cozy evenings on the couch dancing in his head, blissfully unaware of the chaos that is about to ensue. The channel is changed, however when their son Gary loses his job, daughter Janey leaves her husband and both adult children boomerang back to their perplexed parents for an extended and unexpected stay.
Beware of the "flying Flucks". As soon as the two siblings are together or interacting with their parents, they quickly fall into old ways of communicating - pouting, whining and foot stomping that ends up very funny and startlingly realistic. Further complications arise with the arrival of Gary's vivacious girlfriend Bobbi and a suave, articulate bookie named Beverly. With a name like Fluck, there's potential for things going askew and of course, they do, as the play explores family dynamics with love and laughter.
