"Expect to fall head over heels for THINGS, a show with heart and humour... It is, quite simply, loveable." ~ Lancaster Sunday News

Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. They've just packed up all their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life in Chicago. Their moving day doesn't go exactly as planned though and things become slightly more complicated when all their parents show up to help! Can a two-bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that's about to happen?

This brand new comedy from the author of Nana's Naughty Knickers takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents pass their best lessons on to their children without meaning to. Funny and touching, this play will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

"Things My Mother Taught Me is superbly written ... [it's] a wonderful, sentimental, true-to-life comedy about love and family, guaranteed to leave young and old with knowing smiles, because we've all had mothers of our own." ~ Intelligencer Journal
