Jerry Sloan (John Di Leo of Palatine) is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer (Debbi Dennison of Streamwood). Living with the happy couple is Abe Dreyfus (Jim Scott of Highland Park), Jerry's curmudgeon of a father-in-law. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry's mother Mildred (Julie Mitre of Chicago) loses her house in a fire and needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can't stand each other. This play is one hilarious confrontation after another until the heart-warming finale in which the oldsters discover that, really, each is not so bad. Other actors in the play include Ned Ricks of Gurnee, Raj Malhotra of Wheeling, and Kathie Keefe Howski of Riverwoods.
The production staff includes Jeri Solomon (Producer, Set Designer), Kathie Keefe Howski (Associate Artistic Director), Diane Goldman (Assistant Director), Frank Rose (Lighting Designer), Bob Boxer (Sound Designer), and Mel Vahi (Master Carpenter).
