Eleven months after her passing, Mom shows up at her husband’s birthday party. Like Clarence in It’s A Wonderful Life, she must accomplish a task to earn her wings. Her work is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her reluctant daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. Laughs abound as the family’s secrets are revealed in surprising twists told with Minnesotan charm.

From the same playwright as 2009’s A Nice Family Gathering.

Mom’s Gift is presented by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc.
