Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
Jan. 29-Feb. 27
Marx Theatre [Eden Park]

Directed by Blake Robison

Cast: Barbara Chisholm as Theresa “Terri” Carmichael, Erin Noel Grennan as Josephine “Jo” O’Shea, Elli Maddock as Becky O’Shea, John Plumpis as Mike O’Shea/Father Lovett/Betty Heckenbach & Elise Rucker as Linda O’Shea

Home is where the heart is, but it’s also where chaotic hilarity ensues. The O’Sheas are just like any other family in town: middle-class, Irish, Catholic and determined not to offend the priest or the parish. It’s 1973, and public ridicule in their community is the ultimate nightmare, according to 19-year-old Linda O’Shea. With dry yet affectionate humor, she narrates the most turbulent day of her life when a series of mishaps jeopardizes the family’s reputation. It takes every O’Shea in the house — from Linda’s quirky younger sister to her short-tempered grandmother — to keep the family’s name (and their souls) in good standing. Whether you’ve grown up Catholic or you simply can relate to the craziness of family, this new comedy will leave you in stitches. Recommended for ages 13 and up. Characters discuss taboo Catholic topics like contraception, sex and sexuality, and pregnancy. They also use adult language and the Lord’s name in vain quite a few times.
