ABOUT THE PLAY

This Canadian comedy opens at the home of Holly, a self-help writer and single-mom to teenager, Jody. Holly's morning is interrupted when Pam shows up unannounced. Pam, having found a letter from Jody to her teenage son, Evan, deems the letter inappropriate and is eager to discuss matters. What starts as a pleasant enough visit between two moms meeting for the first time, quickly becomes a complicated, bizarre and hilarious roller-coaster ride of misunderstandings, as Holly soon realizes that Pam has no idea what’s actually going on between their kids. The mess and confusion of this precarious situation launches into orbit with the arrival of Holly’s outrageous and filter-less best friend, Cheryl. One lie leads to another and another and another, as Holly and Cheryl do everything in their power to try to keep Pam in the dark. Little does either of them know, Pam may not actually be the head-burying ostrich they think she is. This will be its Nova Scotian premiere.
