Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel from the book by Frank Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, one of the best-loved American memoirs captures the trials, tribulations and humor of life in a big family. Efficiency experts Frank and Lillian Gilbreth raised a family of 12 during the 1920s and Frank used to joke: "You know, they come cheaper by the dozen!" This fun-filled play provides a peek inside the life of a family who often served as the subjects of their fathers' motion studies. The results are often terribly embarrassing, funny and -- extremely effective! The coming-of-age story about rebellion and reconciliation, love and laughter, selfishness and sacrifice has delighted audiences all over the world. Learn More
