Another great production by the Williamston Theater
A Michigan Premiere!
By Carter W. Lewis
March 17 - April 17, 2011
Directed by John Lepard

A "typical" 1950s Irish Catholic family struggles to hold itself together through teenage marriage, paternal death, the integration of a young black boy into their family and the pressure-filled legacy of bowling. These trials and tribulations force them to redefine what family means as they love and laugh their way through this beautiful coming-of-age story. A Michigan Premiere.
