Developed during the 2017 Alley All New Festival, this world premiere farce comes from the author of the Alley’s hit Hand to God. Dan is a self-made man from blue collar Houston while his fiancé is from Dallas — Highland Park, to be exact. As they arrive at her father’s palatial mansion for their wedding, Dan receives a startling revelation about his family, his father, and the secret everybody has been trying to keep. All this while his college buddies are trying to get him drunk, his future father-in-law is shooting his rifle into the ceiling, and Google is trying to take over his business. When the carpenter shows up to build the wedding gazebo, all hell breaks loose. There are mistaken identities, accidental partner swaps, an angry stripper, and laughs. So many laughs.
