Blow Away the Winter Blues with a Laugh Out Loud Comedy.
Friday 11th January 2019 @ 11:37 by Anna Fletcher

The latest production at Lyceum Theatre Oldham continues their season of celebrations with an American comedy with a spooky twist.

Mom’s Gift by award-winning playwright Phil Olson (1 – 9 February 2019) is a comedy with heart, set in the Minnesota home of a family celebrating dad’s birthday under a cloud.

Kat has been ordered home by the court to celebrate with the family but no one expects the gate-crasher to be her mom, especially as she’s been dead for 11 months!

Like It’s A Wonderful Life and Blithe Spirit, Mom is on a Mission of her own. She just needs to work out what it is before she can fix her family. Oh, and Kat is the only person who can see her!

You’ll laugh and cry, feeling all the emotions of the characters on stage. Hopefully you’ll go home and tell someone you love them. It’s that kind of play.

Director Phil Harrison is new to Lyceum Theatre Oldham, but well known to audiences at other local theatres as an actor as well as Director. The six-strong cast is multi-generational and a mix of new faces and old hands, promising a great night out for all the family.

The show runs from 1 – 9 February at 7.30pm (no performance Sunday 3 February).
