A priest, an actress and a football player walk into a family gathering -- and the results are far 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. Full of unexpected plot twists and turns, this comedic play is a clever, heartwarming spin on the old saying, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans!" 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.
