Ethel just wants to see her eldest daughter get married, but everything seems to have gone awry starting when there is “no room in the inn” for the wedding party to dress, so they are relegated to a storage room; the father of the bride may have lost his shirt but gained his soul, and the groom’s former girlfriend has shown up, causing the bride to rip her dress kicking the commode in anger.
This play is a celebration of the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of women when the chips are down.
Ethel’s sister Vespa has given her husband a black eye, her sister Ada keeps fainting because grandma Edith has had vibrations and there may be ghosts in the inn. Great Aunt Rose keeps the older generation calm with her special tea from a flask and young Susie keeps her eye on the ball while her sister Samantha outruns some irate foreigners. Whew. It all takes place in one interesting afternoon.
