Oh, Momma, Oh! A Comedy about Retirement

$5.50

When Mark’s widowed mother, Stella, comes to live with him and his wife Isabel, they aren’t remotely prepared. They think they’re going to talk her into moving into an assisted living facility. Stella thinks…not. Very much not. Instead, she disappears at every given opportunity, picking up men along the way, leaving a trail of disaster in her wake, with Mark and Isabel two steps behind trying to pick up the pieces. All she wants is a man (all right, many men), a bit of dancing, a bit of gambling, a bit of fun… what’s so wrong with that? A comedy about retirement and just because you’re old, it doesn’t mean that you’re dead!
