Leah and her siblings are relegated to the kids table in the kitchen AGAIN for Thanksgiving at Grandma Lucy and Grandpa Elliott’s house. Worse, they’ve had their phones taken away. This leads to the siblings searching the cupboards for snacks. What they come away with is Grandma Lucy’s secret family recipe box.

They think they’re going to find juicy gossip. Instead, they find heartfelt stories about their family told through recipes. Stories they never knew.

A beautiful look into the world of a family rooted in love and food. Food is the language that everyone can speak.

This play was written specifically for middle school performers and won top honors at both the Florida Jr. Thespians District and State levels.
