Character Synopsis:
You have the sarcastic yet caring mother, Hilda Fluck, who ends up being the brains of the family; the hard working and scruffy father, Sam Fluck, who’s the symbol
of grit and perseverance; and throw in two misfit children, Gary Fluck and Janey Fluck, and you have the outline of any number of thirty-year-old sitcoms, this isn’t
a bad thing, for it really helps to solidify the sense of nostalgia. The remaining characters are what set it off the edge. You have the cool-cat, trombone-playing
girlfriend of Gary’s, Bobbi Jakes, and the friendly neighborhood thug, Beverley Woytowich. Add the fact that the children are both dead-end thirty-year-olds trying
to move back home, and you receive a clearer picture of the madness that takes place on stage.

Cast:
Hilda – Mid – fifties.
Sam – Her husband - Mid – fifties.
Gary – The son – 33 yrs old.
Janey – The daughter – 30 yrs old.
Bobbie- Gary’s girlfriend – early thirties.
Beverly – the “Gangster” – around 40 yrs old.

Of course, casting will depend upon who is available during auditions and will be adjusted accordingly.

This is a period piece set around 1956 and is a true ensemble play.
A very good comedy in the best Norm Foster tradition.
