From the magical mind of playwright and celebrated host of NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell me…, Peter Sagal ~ Frank and Doris are retired, comfortable and desperate. One day, they snatch their darling baby granddaughter and make a run for Florida, land of eternal sunshine and eternal rest, where they meet a variety of characters living on the fuzzy border between life and la-la-land—all of whom look just like the people they left behind. Cornered by an affable detective, they make one last run to President Truman's Little White House in Key West, at the very end of the road. There, their daughter Isabel, an avenging angel in expensive clothes, corners and confronts them with every mistake they've ever made. This comedy about parents, children, and the fate that awaits us all, won a MacArthur Fellowship from the O'Neill Theater Center. Advisory: This Florida adventure may make your heart race and your mind bend, but it’s fun for the entire family.
