Making God Laugh is that rare play that manages to be absolutely genuine, deeply moving and unbelievably funny all at once. The show title is inspired by the Woody Allen joke, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” In Sean Grennan's new comedy, the play centers on a couple of empty nesters welcoming home their three children over various holidays spanning three decades. As the parents and grown children deal with each of their evolving lives, we get a glimpse inside their dreams, unresolved issues, old family traditions, and of course, dubious holiday recipes. Tensions flare up and laughs break out as audiences join the family fun during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s visits.
