About this Article

The poet Robert Frost wrote: "Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in." But they don't have to make it pleasant, as anyone who has experienced the forced joviality and underlying tension that can underscore some family holidays can attest. Chicago native Sean Grennan ("Married Alive!") mines that treasure trove of angst and dysfunction in the holiday-themed dramedy "Making God Laugh," running at Fox Valley Repertory in St. Charles.
