Hale’s lover, Peach, wants to tie the knot. Hale wants to throw in the rope. On the advice of her questionable therapist, Hale (hoping to solve some of her “commitment issues”) decides to go home to her family for Thanksgiving Dinner for the first time in ten years. Hale’s mother decides not to have the dinner around the dining room table but outside in the woods, just like the pilgrims. The tract of land she chooses for the festivities is surrounded by a rifle range.
Featuring Morgan Brayton, Cherise Clarke, Suzie Payne, and Jan Derbyshire
