When you move into a new apartment, don’t forget to clean the top of the refrigerator and buy a new toilet seat.

These are just a few of the moving-day tips from Things My Mother Taught Me, the heartwarming and hilarious comedy that Rural Root Theatre Company is producing this spring.

Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. After moving across the country, their moving day doesn’t go exactly as planned, and things become slightly more complicated when both sets of their parents show up to help! Can a two bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that’s about to happen? This brand new comedy from Katherine DiSavino, directed by Jennifer Boucher and Kellie Shrimpton, and produced by Tara Kroeger, takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents are passing their best lessons on to their children without even meaning to. Funny and touching, this one will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again.

Things My Mother Taught Me runs from April 30 to May 3, with additional shows on May 8 and 9 at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre. Show times are at 7:30 p.m. Visit Ruralroot.org and keep your eyes on our Facebook page for updates, rehearsal photos and more. Tickets on sale March 15.
