This hilarious play pits a father-in-law against a mother in a comedic succession of family squabbles. Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles and his wife, Alice, is an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is Jerry’s wise-cracking curmudgeon of a father-in-law, Abe Dreyfus, a retired New York cabbie. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry’s mother, Mildred, loses her house in a fire and needs a place to stay. But Jerry’s mother and his father-in-law don’t like each other one bit, so how will they all survive in the same house? It’s a guaranteed laugh-a-minute situation with a heart-warming ending.
