An electrifying new play from the author of Alabaster and Maytag Virgin! In small-town Alabama, ex-mill worker, Euba, desperately does not want the birthday party her mother insists on throwing for her. On the eve of the celebration with their mutual friends, underlying tensions erupt to the surface in this surprising and compassionate dramedy of generational scars and the complex relationship between mothers and daughters.

Audrey Cefaly returns to PlayLab after the 2018 reading of Alabaster, which began its 11-theatre National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere at Florida Rep in 2019/2020.
