Daddy's in jail for fraud, Uncle Baites has taken up with a panhandler, and Lafcad's just called off his own wedding
But what family doesn't have its ups and downs?
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Henley returns to her Southern roots with a vengeance in this achingly poignant saga of three grown brothers trying to outrun a family history that tends to the worst-case scenario
"Outrageous, funny, pathetic, and, as you may suspect from the title, fraudulent, these people are extracted from the fertile mind of a playwright who won the Pulitzer and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Drama ... Henley filters her delectably skewed view of Southerners with a unique flair for instigating the improbable but possible" ~ CurtainUp
"Endowed with richly quirky characters, elegant writing and human behavior both funny and dark ... Henley at her best" ~ Hollywood Reporter
