About the play

Ever dreamed of spending your children’s inheritance? A well-to-do widow Angela (Edwina Himes) living in Florida grows tired of handing out money to her neglectful and unappreciative children. Angela and recently widowed neighbor Martin (Don Watson) set up a foundation to give her money to people truly in need.

When her greedy son (Andrew Manning) and his shopaholic wife (Carmen Scott) find out what she’s up to, they attempt to have her declared financially incompetent. However, Mom learns of their scheme and turns the tables on them, showing just how competent she really is.

This laugh-filled comedy received its world premiere in Atlanta, Ga., in January 2009, where it garnered rave reviews and broke box office records.

Theatre Off The Square is an all-volunteer organization and relies on ticket sales and donations to support its productions. If you’d like to join in the fun, contact the theatre through the phone number above.
