About This Show

Leave behind Ozzie and Harriet and Father Knows Best and enter into the tumultuous, twisted and touching Hauser household as playwright Jon Klein exposes the contemporary American family in Dimly Perceived Threats to the System.

Maryls Hauser (Karen Kellner) is a management consultant who can’t seem to manage the slightest problem at home. Her husband, Josh (Ted Schneider), is developing a film about the American Family in Crisis–while slipping into an affair with his own producer Megan (Elizabeth Yeats). Moreover, his aged mother is dying because, according to Dr Grey (Kelli Biggs), her “system is being threatened.” The Hauser’s comically dysfunctional daughter, Christine (Katie Keddell), torments her school therapist Mr. Sykes (Stuart Fischer)–when she’s not channeling the spirit of her grandmother. Reality and fantasy overlap with hilarious results as this unforgettable family attempts to survive the new millennium.
