A priest, an actress and a football player walk into a family gathering -- and the results are much more entertaining than any one-liner. Making God Laugh centers around a couple of beleaguered empty-nesters as they host their three adult children -- a devout priest, an aspiring actress and a former football star -- over the course of 30 years of family celebrations.

Brent Stringfield directs this acclaimed stage comedy by playwright Sean Grennan (Beer for Breakfast) at the Oil Lamp Theater. Learn More
