Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever.

Clay and Kelly share a perfect suburban house with two perfect daughters and have a perfect life. That is until Clay’s mother, Carol, and his brother Cash, with his young Eastern European girlfriend come to have Thanksgiving dinner together.

When a mysterious intruder disrupts Thanksgiving dinner, the gloves come off and an already nervous situation takes a turbulent turn for the worse. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris’ wickedly funny comedy of desire, deceit and family values is guaranteed to get under your skin.

Capital T is proud to present Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright Bruce Norris’ scathing satire directed by 2 time Austin Critics Table Award Winning Director Mark Pickell (Killer Joe, Hunter Gatherers). The all star cast includes Austin favorites Kenneth Wayne Bradley (Killer Joe), Lana Dietrich, Liz Fisher (Hunter Gatherers), Indigo Rael (Exit Pursued by a Bear), and Ben Wolfe (I Heart Walmart).
