Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre
presentsthe Florida premiere of the holiday comedy
Making God Laugh
Inspired by the Woody Allen joke, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans”, Sean Grennan’s Making God Laugh will make its Florida premiere at Actors’ Playhouse from December 4 – 29, 2013.
Making God Laugh is a family comedy, following “empty nest” parents as they welcome their children home over various holidays, each ten years apart. Over the course of thirty years’ worth of celebrations, audiences follow the parents and grown children as they adapt to their new adult relationships.
Tensions flare up as unresolved issues, old family traditions and dubious recipes are trotted out in this rare play that manages to be absolutely genuine, deeply moving and unbelievably funny all at the same time.
Director David Arisco says: "We have assembled an all-star cast to create a dysfunctional American family that you will all recognize. In many ways, they will remind you of your own. We know these people well and will laugh and cry
