About This Show

Elizabeth is convinced her husband Robert is at death’s door, and she’s determined to get the whole brood together for a final family holiday, quickly, before his bird has flown. Of course, all three kids and their spouses have their own lives, agendas, and emergencies, but a few obstacles won’t stop Elizabeth. Some people will do anything to defend their nest in the world premiere of Last Swallows, a modern family dramatic comedy by Cailin Harrison.

Last Swallows is set in present-day New England and framed through the contemporary scope of a diverse family including the spouses of the families’ adult siblings. The retired patriarch is happy to see life go by through binoculars birdwatching while the doting matriarch only wants her family to all be together. Harrison gets up close and personal with the dynamics of the parents, their three adult children, and their spouses, with all the attendant ups and downs.
