 "MAKING GOD LAUGH"
A comedy/drama by Sean Grennan

Directed by Jay Desiderio

Making God Laugh by Sean Grennan is a family comedy/drama that takes place in four scenes, each ten years apart, set at various holidays. Starting in 1980, the newly “launched” kids a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former star football player- all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The “empty nest” parents contend with their own changes too, as old family rituals and dubious recipes are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. Over the course of thirty years worth of celebrations- Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve and Easter- we see how, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations.
As Woody Allen once said, “If you want to make god laugh, tell him your plans...”

Making God Laugh features some of Buffalo’s finest talent with Lisa Hinca, Michael Breen, Audrey Grout, Vincent Barile, and Caleb Paxton.

A gem of comic relief... this new heartwarming comedy has everything going for it. Making God Laugh has a dramatic and honest story of real people layered with a hoot of hilarity, yet the show is so meaningful that one has tears of joy by show’s end.” -Betty Mohr, Chicago Sun times

“Grennan proves himself to be a master of the back-and-forth of dialogue...This is the story of like’s changes of direction, the role reversals of parents and children, the primacy of the reality of now versus the memories of the past and the predictions of the future, and the importance of a family breaking bread together” -J.Scott Hill, Chicago Stage Review
