“Squabbles” at Players Theater Company

by Marshall Karp

This hilarious play pits a father-in-law against a mother in a comedic succession of squabbles. Jerry Sloan is a successful writer of advertising jingles married to an equally successful lawyer. Living with the happy couple is the not-so-happy Abe (Jerry's curmudgeon father-in-law). Abe is a funny guy...to the audience, not to Jerry. The situation is exacerbated when Jerry's mother Mildred's house burns down and she needs a place to stay. Abe and Mildred can't stand each other. The play is one hilarious confrontation after another until the heart-warming finale in which the oldsters discover that, really, each is not so bad.
