Studio Theater at Portland Stage
Meet the Smiths, the Johnsons, and the Joneses. They live in a nice little cul-de-sac in a nice little suburb in a nice little state in a nice big country. And they’re happy. Or—trying to be. The lengths to which they go to be happy—or at least seem, or feel happy—are hilarious and heartbreaking. From the writer of Almost, Maine, Last Gas, and LOVE/SICK, this not-quite-for-families comedy examines the American dream—and the nightmare it can become.
