Set in the United States, Jessica is holding a surprise birthday party for her girlfriend Samantha. She has planned the weekend to include dinner with friends, followed by a surprise proposal.  However, plans are thrown into chaos when friends cancel and both of their mothers show up a day early.

Jessica had no idea that Samantha has not told her mother that she is in a new relationship or that it is with a woman. Frustration and confusion follow as Samantha has to find a way to break the news to her mother whilst Jessica decides if she can forgive Samantha.  The play is an extremely authentic portrayal of mother-daughter relationships, both cordial and trying.

Cast: 4 actors with 4F. Run-time : approx 83 minutes.
