Fall 2018 - A Nice Family Gathering

November 14-17 2018

It's Thanksgiving Day and the first family gathering at the Lundeen household since the Dad died. At the gathering, Dad comes back as a ghost with a mission; to tell his wife he loved her, something he neglected to tell her while he was alive. After all, they were only married for a few decades! The problem is, she can't hear or see him.

And then Mom invites a date for dinner...

This pleasantly quirky tale, by turns comic and tender, was written by Phil Olson following the passing of his own father. The genuine voice the characters inhabit will be delightfully familiar... and might just remind you how much you love your family, not just during Thanksgiving, warts and all!
