Andy has a sweet Catholic mother, a sour Catholic father and a severely retarded younger brother named Mickey. When he brings his Jewish atheist fiance to meet the folks on Christmas Eve, his worst fears about family blow ups are realized. But Mickey, whose entire vocabulary is "oh boy" and "wow," suddenly says "Greetings!" An ancient, wise and witty spirit who is set upon healing the family has borrowed Mickey's body. Though a play for all seasons, Greetings! is ideal for groups wanting something special to put on at Christmas/Hanukkah time. The Off Broadway production starred Darren McGavin and Gregg Edelman.
