G*d: spoken once


There are no instances of physical violence onstage. However, it is mentioned at the start of the show that the Plaids were killed in a bus accident. In addition, Jinx suffers from occasional nosebleeds.


There are no direct references to sex, but many of the songs in the show are romantic in nature. During one song, the microphone gets tangled and ends up resting on the groin of one of the Plaids. It is also implied (in only a single mention) that Uncle Chester (Upright Bass) is in a relationship with Sparky's mother.

Drinking, Drugs, and Smoking

There is no drinking, smoking, or drug use in this show.

Families Can Talk About...

Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings provides a good opportunity to speak with young people about the power of teamwork, how it's never too late to start pursuing your dreams, and the power of holiday music to create positive feelings of nostalgia and bring people together.
