Rita Gardner stars in the Abingdon Theatre Company's production of The Parker Family Circus, a new play by Jan Buttram. Everyone expects Mamaw to watch over her mildly retarded teenage grandson while the rest of the family tends to cell phones, careers, and rare comic books. But when the television breaks, Mamaw's "slow" grandchild provides some unwelcome entertainment himself! As the chaos escalates, this urban Texas household discovers that the highest-rated family dramas air when people tune in to each other. Taylor Brooks directs.
