This laugh-out-loud comedy will be a limited engagement running for only two weeks from August 18th – August 28th. 

ABOUT THE SHOW: The Jenkins family is coming together to celebrate the life of their father—hopefully without killing each other! Eldest daughter, Baneatta, wants everything to be perfect for her father’s funeral. “Favorite” daughter, Beverly, would rather honor her daddy dressed to show the entire congregation what she’s been “blessed with.” Teenage granddaughter, La’trice, can’t mind her own business if it was on a leash. Not far behind comes grandson Kenny and his very Jewish boyfriend Logan who is maybe, sort of, okay, definitely afraid of Baneatta. But Baneatta’s hopes unravel when a family secret shows up at the funeral.
