The play takes place in a newly acquired apartment.
The mothers have lots of last minute advice to give the couple. The fathers do, too. The young couple's take on the advice plus the things they remember from childhood bring constant chuckles from the audience.
To add a little spice to the mix, the building caretaker shows up periodically. Max, played by Paul Robinson, is curious about the new renters and their visitors. He has helpful and not so helpful suggestions.
The problems escalate and so does the laughter from the audience. However, since this is a romantic comedy, all ends well, maybe even better than anyone expected.
To me, a little extra that made me smile was this poster in the lobby. Playgoers were invited to post words of advice from their own mothers.
