By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten
Directed by Dann Peterson

In this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, written by Hope, Jones, and Wooten—also known for The Dixie Swim Club and Hallelujah Girlsthe three Verdeen cousins could not have picked a worse time take over planning the family reunion, but they can’t back out now.

Unfortunately, they face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. As this fast-paced romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

You’ll surely have red velvet cake on the mind after watching the hilarious Verdeen family bake-off, and we have just the solution. Read more about our bake sale and cake raffle on our blog.
