by Rosemary FrisinoToohey

The Thanksgiving gathering in this small apartment is no Norman Rockwell picture. The vegan teenager in the family is horrified that a “poor bird” is roasting away in the oven. There’s not enough food, but two uninvited guests manage to wangle their way in for dinner. Another couple said they had “news” to share and the family figured they’d hear about the upcoming birth of a child. Wrong. When the turkey catches fire and folks decide to take off for roomier pastures, an environmental accident occurs and everyone must “shelter in place.” Can it get any worse?  Oh, yes indeed.
