Synopsis:

A Pirandellian farce in which a play about a chaotic family pretends to be just a chaotic rehearsal. The piece is filled with mind-bending mirror images that are compelling and hilarious. Acts and scenes occur out of sequence. Actors forget lines and fight over the contents of the script. The author (the family's old grandma) gets ejected by the director for giving notes to the actors but she sneaks back in to do Tai Chi exercises and tell truths to the audience. Romance develops between the daughter and the lighting assistant. She is a naive but sex-crazed college junior, prone to follow her mother's example and instantly marry a person she has just met. He is a nervous wreck who nearly electrocutes himself and the entire cast, then claims to be her brother in reality. Her philandering father, divorced though still stuck to her mother in Alaska, shoots himself in the head rather than kill his wife but reappears as a ghost at the engagement party. The mother, a multiple cancer victim and obsessive photographer, always comes late to rehearsal and recites only what she feels like saying. Other characters storm the stage from the audience. The play ends in a promised finale that gets canceled for lack of an elephant, a horse, a monkey, a tiger, and a bear, but the substitute finale will grab you by the seat of the pants. In short, tragedy and comedy shove each other around for the right to be on stage.
