Carolyn has one evening to cook a three-course turkey dinner, make peace with her parents, get married in her grandmother's dress and hide the fact that she's in labor. What could possibly go wrong? Having Hope at Home is a side-splitting look at a family learning to love again. On a cold winter night, in a drafty farmhouse, Carolyn goes into labor just as her parents arrive for dinner. She can't tell them she's having a home birth, as her father is the head of gynecology at the local hospital. She has to pretend everything is normal including passing off the midwife as the vet. Good intentions dissolve as modern medicine meets midwifery in a torrent of family feuding over where this baby should be born. As tensions rise between the three stubborn generations of family members, so does the laughter. It takes some serious truth-telling and a baby's birth to heal the rift in this hilarious, heartwarming story of forgiveness and hope. A light comedy with serious intentions, the play shows us how the human heart sometimes takes the long way home.  863-676-1266
