Wild child April lives in Manhattan with her new boyfriend, Bobby. After years of living happily independent of her parents and siblings, she invites them and her grandmother to Thanksgiving dinner which she and Bobby prepare themselves. Soon enough, things start to go south when the oven won’t heat. Trying every neighbor in the building, April looks for a substitute oven that she can use to prepare the feast while Bobby goes out to run an errand. Meanwhile, the family road trip into Manhattan has its ups and downs too. April’s mom struggles with advancing cancer and bad memories of her relationship with April. Dad is overwhelmed with the reality of his wife’s terminal state and how he and the children will cope. Nobody really wants to spend the holiday with April anyway.
Conversation topics include: resilience, building and rebuilding relationships, family dynamics, growing up, developing wise and random acts of beauty. Laura Elliott will facilitate the discussion.
