By Karol Kapelle - Director - Lake Region Homeschoolers
We had a blast presenting this play! The audience loved it and the actors had trouble not laughing themselves. It has such an easy set design and limited props, etc., so it makes it a very stress free production. I love the script and look forward to doing more of Eddie McPherson's work.

Just wanted to pass along to you that our production of Grandma's Best Years received rave reviews! The cast loved it and the audience was entranced!! Eddie McPhereson has a real fan! I look forward to using more of his material. Please keep me posted on anything new that comes from his pen.

Also, everyone at Heuer Publishing is a joy to work with! The material is wonderful and the perusal scripts that come with an order are always read. I'll be in touch for next year's play (and probably a musical)!

 
Synopsis
When Grandma Simms comes from the farm to visit her daughter, she finds the situation unbearable. It seems that her daughter, Mrs. Abbott, has become a materialistic social climber since the death of her husband. Because of this, the three Abbott children and Sadie, the nanny, are miserable.
 
The very day Grandma arrives, Mrs. Abbott invites three upper-crust acquaintances for dinner. One of them is the rich and snobbish Arthur Carlson, who, Mrs. Abbott insists, her daughter must marry even though she loves Brandon, a veterinarian assistant. One of the other guests is Miss Quelch, an unlikable spinster who runs an exclusive all-girls school, which is where Mrs. Abbott intends to send Kimberly, her fifteen-year-old daughter. Mrs. Abbot's thirteen year-old son, Willie, is also suffering. Mrs. Abbot insists Willie practice his violin every waking moment.
 
Well, Grandma is determined to put a stop to all this, so she decides to invite the family black sheep, cousin Oscar, to Mrs. Abbott’s weekend party. She thinks this will sufficiently disgrace her social-climbing daughter and set things straight But the scheme doesn’t come off quite as planned when she mistakes a criminal for her long-lost cousin and invites him to dinner. This causes plenty of exciting complications, but Mrs. Abbott begins to see the light and eventually recognizes the value of a child's independence.
