Directed by Julia Traber, with Kim Tobin playing the manipulative mother, this comedy/drama occasionally moves into surreal territory and isn't recommended for children. Tobin had seen the play in New York and contacted Greenfield for the rights. ''I'm just so excited and honored to have my play in another state. I feel so honored that it gets to be in Houston,'' Greenfield says. And in fact, she's flying down for opening weekend.
