Holy Stromboli Performed at the Richey Suncoast Theater
April 8 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
John and Maria are happily celebrating their first wedding anniversary when Maria’s mother, Nicolette, shows up unexpectedly. Nicolette announces that she is divorcing Maria’s father, Sal, because he forgot their 27th wedding anniversary. And if that isn’t enough to ruin John and Maria’s celebration, Sal pays a visit. A fight breaks out, and one thing leads to another until, eventually, Sal and John end up sleeping in the guest room. This leaves Maria no other choice but to share a bed with her talkative mother. To save his sanity and his own marriage, John solicits help from his friend, Anthony, and concocts a plan to reunite the older couple by arranging a fabulous anniversary dinner. However, just when things are looking up, John’s recently divorced father makes a surprise visit with his new, much younger wife to meet their new grandson. The only problem is that John and Maria don’t have a baby! But with the help of a toy dinosaur and a puppy, the phantom baby makes an appearance. This is the perfect play for an evening of hilarious door slams, witty banter and ageless romance. (Meet these characters in the prequel, “Holy Cannoli.”)
