A North-East Ohio original by Stow native Brandi Eaton, ‘Matt’s First (Real) Thanksgiving’ tell the story of Matt Quinn, a recently “out” thirty-something who wants to bring his new boyfriend Jason home to his family for Thanksgiving. There’s only one problem: Matt’s parents don’t know yet. Add to this one troublesome little sister, an outrageous and boozy aunt, a snarky grandmother, and an unexpected visit from your ex-boyfriend, and Thanksgiving dinner suddenly becomes a recipe for comedy! Join us in celebrating progressive local voices with this hilarious, home-grown comedy. Note: This play may contain adult themes and humor.
