May 13, 2017 – Milton, Canada: The cast of Gibson & Sons takes a bow following the play’s final performance at the Milton Centre for the Arts.

The hilarious, award-winning Canadian comedy “Gibson & Sons” closed its Milton run Saturday night. Winner of the Stage West Pechet Family Comedy Award, this quirky, funny, heartwarming comedy was written by Kristen Da Silva.

Helping his father save their struggling small-town funeral home has gotten in the way of Harry Gibson’s love life. Desperate to settle down, he turns to an unconventional method of meeting a woman: an online Russian bride service. When his bride Katya arrives, with her acerbic sister Eva in tow, the Gibson family is thrown into a tailspin. Harry needs to convince his traditional father that he knows what he’s doing, convince his friends and family that he hasn’t lost his mind, oh…and explain to his bride-to-be that their marital home will be shared with the dearly departed. And Katya and Eva must deal with the culture shock of landing in a Canada that isn’t exactly what they expected. Gibson & Sons is a hilarious, touching comedy about family, love and making all kinds of relationships work…Even the unexpected kind.
