Gibson & Sons by Kristen Da Silva
Winner of the Stage West Comedy Award
Helping his father run the family business (a struggling small-town funeral home) has gotten in the way of Harry Gibson's' love life. Missing his recently departed mother, and hungry for companionship and the chance at having a family of his own, he secretly turns to an unconventional method of meeting a woman: an online Russian bride service. When his bride Katya, along with her acerbic older sister Eva, arrive on Canadian soil, the sisters are plunged into culture shock while the Gibson family is thrown into a tailspin.

"...a continual giggle with quotable lines too numerous to list. There’s also some very touching and identifiable bits that make GIBSON & SONS hit a personal chord."
