In the play, single mother Elizabeth Miller is having a bad day. A tree has crashed through her ceiling, the fridge is on the fritz, a forceful crowd threatens to invade her family’s kitchen — and then there’s the odd new family pet! At the center of this chaos, time stands still as mother and son jump-start their relationship and try to confront reality together across the breakfast table.

Directed by Mark Routhier, the production features Orlando actors John Connon, Jillian Gizzi, Heather Leonardi, Chris Metz, and Suzanne O’Donnell.

Tickets are $25, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office at (407) 447-1700, online at orlandoshakes.org, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center in Loch Haven Park.

Preview shows on February 27 and 28, as well as a senior matinee on March 5, are only $17.
