Key City Theatre

Friday November 10 at 7:30 pm

A NEW GENERATION OF LAUGHS

From the world-renowned creative team behind the Mom’s the Word series comes a new chapter in their stories of family and fracas. Their kids are grown, their marriages have “evolved,” and their bodies are backfiring. Life doesn’t get any prettier, but it never strays far from ludicrous or poignant as the moms continue to mine their personal history for every embarrassing detail. Filled with insights, secrets, and ribald humour, this brand-new show from the moms you love is both hysterical and deeply touching.

Tickets Start at $37. Buy online at keycitytheatre.com or call 250-426-7006

Double booked, Marla despairs, but due to a dangerous, road-blocking snow storm, has no choice but to go along with it.
