“Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country, to start a new life together in Chicago.  Their moving day doesn’t go exactly as planned, though, and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up to help! Unbeknownst to Olivia, Gabe has invited both sets of parents to surprise her.  One of the moms spills the beans that Gabe is going to propose and if that’s not bad enough, the U-Haul, containing ALL OF THEIR POSSESSIONS  – – -INCLUDING THE ENGAGEMENT RING is stolen from the street after only one load has been brought into the apartment!  Can a two bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that’s about to happen?
This brand new comedy takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents are passing their best lessons on to their children without even meaning to. Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again. For this Romantic Comedy I will need:
OLIVIA KEEGAN -late 20s; energetic; neat; slightly OCD; an architect.
KAREN KEEGAN – late 40-50s; Olivia’s mother.
CARTER KEEGAN – 40-50s; Olivia’s father.
GABE LAWSON – late 20s; a writer; good-natured.
LYDIA LAWSON – late 40-50s; Gabe’s mother.
WYATT LAWSON – 40-50s; Gabe’s father.
MAX MIROWSKI – late 30-50s; Polish accent; building super; may be played by a man or woman.
Set in the present day and contains physical comedy.
