What do you do when you have three geriatric sisters as patients and all they want to do is sit at home and talk to one another, all at the same time? You move another person in with them. At least, that's what Doc Lomax does when he has a new nurse needing a place to live ,a nurse with a secret, that is. The hard part is convincing the sisters they need a roomer. In no time, however, Nurse Jean has them planning parties, pulling Halloween pranks and wearing jogging suits while they race each other to the corner. But when the nephew shows up with a plan to sell the family house, things seem to get complicated again, especially with Christmas just around the corner. This heartwarming piece is loaded with wisecracks and one-liners that keep the laughter flowing.
All tickets are just $10.00 and can be purchased from: Gilmer Area Chamber of Commerce, Charm Beauty Salon, Photos by Ruel, LLoyds Body Shop, Dr. Cherie Nazzal - Animal Medical and Surgical Hospital.
