Cast: 4 Women aged 20s-80s
MOM (50s - 60s) Very nice. Always putting on a happy face, her goal is to keep the peace and get through the family event without incident. Mom's husband, Carl (senior), died three years ago. She's doing her best to get over the loss and keep everyone happy.
GRANDMA (70s - 80s) A real character. She grew up in a one-room house with 10 brothers and sisters on a farm in northern North Dakota, and had a very tough life growing up. She is tough as nails, and wants everyone else to be, too. Think Estelle Getty on "The Golden Girls."
STACY (20s - 30s) The younger sister. Nice. Kind of a wholesome innocence, even given what we learn about her. She's overlooked, but not angry about it.
JILL (20s - 30s) Michael's trophy wife. Emotional from being hormonal, and sometimes a little spacey. She's the only one who seems to understand Grandma's crazy sayings.
It's Christmas Eve at Helen Lundeen's Minneapolis apartment, three years after her husband died. An unexpected visit from crazy Uncle Bob and their outrageous Grandmother starts the evening on its wild journey. Middle son, Carl, has been charged to write an article for his newspaper about Christmas with his family or he's fired. However, he doesn't have his family's consent. One by one, we learn of each family member's secrets, problems, and dysfunctions, and when they learn that Carl is writing an article with some very personal family information, the fruitcake hits the fan! The question is, can the magic of Christmas bring them back together? This holiday comedy is a sequel to A Nice Family Gathering that we produced in Season 25.
