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

Quotes & Highlights
“Absolutely enchanting…a little bit of heaven.” —Chicago Tribune
It’s 1959 in Buffalo, New York – Elvis, drive-ins, and The Honeymooners made life fun and simple. Not for the Pazinski household though! Polish-Catholics Chet and Ellen live above their tavern with their four teenagers, each questioning family values in their own mischievous ways. And when wise-cracking 12-year-old Rudy questions the Roman Catholic Church to ruler-cracking Sister Clarissa before his confirmation, the outcome is a hilarious yet touching comedy that would even make the Cleavers at a loss for good advice!
Rating: PG, some mild adult language.
