Performance Time: Approximately 100 minutes, 96 pgs.

COMEDY. Colin McKinney, a successful romance novelist, wants to keep his profession a secret from his ultra-Catholic parents, especially his overbearing, neurotic mother. Colin writes under the pseudonym, Amber Waves, and tells his fans that he is a housewife. Colin also wants to prevent his parents from finding out that his fiancée, Jen, is really a Baptist. With his parents halfway across the country, Colin thinks his secrets are safe until his parents and sister decide to visit him to celebrate the Feast of Epiphany. To ready himself for their visit, Colin hides his romance novels and creates games like “Who Wants to be Canonized,” “The Our Father Sing-a-long,” and the “Patron Saints Board Game” to help Jen learn enough about Catholicism to pass as a Catholic. This outrageously entertaining comedy offers a blizzard of one-liners and outlandish situations.
