The play tells the story of John, an irascible Scotsman and an uptight English woman, Maude, both in their late 50s, who take on the journey of a lifetime

They are brought together when his ward marries her niece

Then, when the young couple decides to adopt a new born baby, the older couple has to travel 6,000 miles to California to pick up the child and bring her safely home to Scotland

The problem is, John and Maude despise each other

To make matters worse, they get stranded in San Francisco for several weeks and are expected to jointly care for the helpless newborn

There they form a new partnership and learn some startling lessons about life and love

"Hilarious!" ~ Variety

"A gentler brand of comedy ... It's a pleasure to encounter a comedy about two mature individuals. It's perfect" ~ The Houston Chronicle
