Theme:
Family Matters

Sometimes we are born to family, and sometimes families are simply thrust upon us.

We will gently hold your hand as you 'fess up, debrief, and unload all the stuff you've picked up over the years from being in close relationship with one another. Tell us about your family, be it biological, tribal, work-related or adopted.  What does our culture say is family? How has your family story shaped you, made you laugh, driven you, or left you yearning? And what exactly did Aunt Janet say that one time when the dog scarfed up the turkey while everyone was watching football? We'll run it through the metaphor machine and see what comes out in song, dance and drama as your jaw drops in astonishment.
