Several seasons back, Jeff Folschinsky wrote a sublimely silly service comedy,
The Unsinkable Bismarck, which delighted audiences and critics alike and kept them
howling with laughter for several months. Now he's back, setting his sights
on a typical American family. On second thought, maybe not so typical.
We meet them on Thanksgiving...Turkey Day.

Bruce and Buffy are a truly loving if childless couple.
They await her sister Beatrice with husband Ernie and son Edgar, plus Bruce's parents.
Not attending the meal but close by is helpful neighbor Bobby Ray.

It will be an eventful day. Over the course of the next several hours,
the assembled will learn that Mom and Dad actually split up long ago;
that Edgar, a young teen obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe,
will find his true parentage called into question;
the house will nearly burn down;
one of their number will grab a knife and begin to wield it;
another will be possessed with prophecies of destruction;
yet another will appear to die, resurrect and embark upon a reign of terror.

Can there possibly be a happy ending?
Turkey Day is, after all, a comedy.
It's the play that puts the fun in dysfunction.
