"The play's unlikely catalyst is Homer Bolton, the awkward 40-year-old son of Ida and Carl. Shy, simple-minded, and still devoted to his mother, Homer brings his girlfriend home to meet the family for the first time--after 12 years of courtship. With this belated step toward the altar, he unintentionally stirs old passions and creates assorted new anxieties in the lives of everyone around him: in his mother, confused by her attachment to her son and her desire to see him married; in his father, given to "spells" of melancholy and vague remorse; the furtive aunt Cora, who is determined to have the life she feels had been denied her; in the steady uncle Thor, and in the spinster aunt Arry who lives with them, clinging to an old secret which is her last defense against the threat of change; and in the rebellious aunt Esty and the stuffy uncle David, who has little patience with the simple concerns of his wife's family." -- From book jacket
