Show description: Modern Day  Comedy/Farce. Takes place in the Summer 1981 - the  Coleman's Home in an upper-class suburb in middle America.

It’s Courtney’s wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce the doorbell rings. And all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect.
