Synopsis: The family is named Bliss, but all is not blissful in this comically dysfunctional family. Mother, Judith, is a melodramatic retired actress who overacts everything. Father, David, is an eccentric novelist. The children, Sorel and Simon, are both very attractive but quite bratty and ill-mannered.

One weekend they all invite guests, unbeknownst to the others. The guests are all in for a bewildering weekend. The family is used to each other's antics but the guests aren't quite ready for it.

The New York Times reported that the play provided "an evening of intoxicating escape." And, the NY Post said it is "light, luminous, and charming...and hilariously funny."
