things-my-mother-taughtCoastal Stage Productions presents a clever comedy about moving on.

Young couple Olivia and Gabe (Robyn Beckwith & Shane Kelly) are starting their new life together and moving into their own apartment in Chicago.

They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven twelve hours from New York City for a fresh start. The lovely couple is still a LONG way from gaining their independence and moving day becomes a little too crowded when both sets of parents (Margy Oehlert & Dave Falls, Donna Capps & Dan Herrin) and the new building superintendent (Paul Gonzalez) all decide to show up to help! With cleaning products, bottles of liquor, and plenty of sage advice, they all offer Gabe and Olivia pointers on how they should prepare to tackle their new life. Adding to the day’s hilarity, the loaded U-Haul truck suddenly drives off and Gabe decides to unexpectedly pop the question! Thank goodness for silent prayer, great vodka and the Things My Mother Taught Me.
