"For those of you just tuning in, Thanksgiving is already in progress here at Wembly kitchen. The stands are nice and full, it's quite a crowd that's gathered. They're in for a real treat."
A New York Times Critic's Pick! "Spectacularly inventive! Ms. Benson, the playwright, is fearless and remarkably assured in this dizzyingly entertaining work, which the program describes as her first full production. And the direction of Ms. Evans unfurls it on the Dixon Place stage with wit and verve, conjuring the story - the preparation and serving of a gigantic family dinner - without so much as a salad plate in sight."
