"This is what I always imagined hell would be like."

Everything was going just fine before the shape-shifter showed up. Grandma Ruthie’s three tolerably dysfunctional daughters were throwing her a birthday party (including unbalanced Sylvia, with her terrifying hook hands). The kids were coming, too, and nobody planned on mentioning the family’s horrific secrets. But now there’s soda and cheese puffs spilled everywhere and a mysterious pink letter is circulating around the kitchen. What happens when it’s opened is just the tip of the iceberg in the Chicago premiere of Jason Grote’s dark comedy, as supernatural forces conspire to bring everyone to the brink of confronting the pasts they’ve kept so carefully buried.

 

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission
