WORLD PREMIERE! There's no place like home... to make you wanna kill somebody. Three grown "adult" sisters are thrust back into living together as a last resort after their various lives have fallen apart. This trio can't even agree on how to unpack their stuff much less their relationships and pasts. And before they can finish the bottle of vodka they found in the kitchen, everything goes from bad to worse, to a lot, LOT worse. Can they set aside their grievances long enough to work together and save themselves? Probably not. But with acerbic wit and an encounter with the pizza man, these three sisters aim to find out.

Carrie Keranen makes her Sacred Fools mainstage directorial debut by organizing playwright Amy Dellagriarino's fascinatingly simple, five-character play into a crisp, 65 minutes of beautifully, nonsensical hilarity. - RECOMMENDED

With hilarious deadly accuracy, playwright Dellagiarno's snappy dialogue captures the kind of put-downs and barbed comebacks only siblings who know one another all too well can use to pick at one another's psychic scabs.

As my companion and I moved out of the intimate auditorium, through the tiny lobby, and out to the street, I started a giggle that morphed to a guffaw and led to laughter that carried around the corner and halfway down Lillian Way before it subsided. I am still smiling.
