Great stage play about a family hunting tradition that takes place in a cabin. NOT appropriate for young children though.

_Escanaba in da Moonlight _

a hilarious comedy by Jeff Daniels

Set on the eve of the opening day of deer season in 1989, Escanaba in da Moonlight tells the story of Reuben Soady, the only son in a family of Upper Peninsula hunters, never to bag a buck. Joined by his pop Albert, brother Remnar, and local oddball Jimmer Negamanee, Reuben is hoping to get his shot and shed the mantle of the buckless yooper. But before dawn approaches, the arrival of a strange DNR ranger and a series of strange occurrences threaten Reubens ultimate goal. Will he bag the buck? Or go down in family history as a failure?
