Siblings Mordy and Jane have a problem. Their dreadful, centenarian grandfather is an emotional and financial tax on the family, and he just won’t die. Scheming almost entirely via sarcastic and misspelled text messages, the siblings hatch an outrageous plan to relieve their family of their grandfather’s burden.

Zany, twisted and inventive, this dark comedy reminds us it’s much easier to write what we could never say face to face.

“Laugh-out-loud funny...Profound social commentary on communication in the 21st century."
-Jewish Chronicle

“An up-to-the-minute play, covering multigenerational themes with a wicked sense of humor.”
-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
