This sophisticated comedy of modern manners deals with the “empty-nester’s” greatest nightmare: the chickens coming home to roost. Affluent, newly widowed and wonderfully politically incorrect, Marjorie is enjoying life sitting by her pool, having imaginary conversations with her late husband, Jack, when both her grown-up children come calling. Neither sibling knows the other has the same plan: to come home and live with poor old Mom. Not only does she not want them living there but—she has decided to sell the estate and move to New Zealand. Family chaos ensues. Her final decision takes everyone by surprise and gives her a new freedom and a new life. This comedy addresses very real and current issues with crackling wit and sometimes controversial reflections on American society in “this day and age.”
