Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever. Clay and Kelly share a perfect house and two perfect children in what seems to be a perfect life. That is, until Clay’s mother, Carol (a self-proclaimed socialist), his estranged brother, Cash (a staunch Republican) and Cash‘s Eastern European girlfriend (20 years his junior) arrive for Thanksgiving dinner. When something mysterious threatens to disrupt the perfect façade, the gloves come off and an awkward situation devolves into absolute chaos. A wickedly funny comedy of desire, deceit and family values by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park).
