​a Sean Grennan Comedy
Directed by Bruce McFadden II

Like a weekend with friends, packed into 2 hours! A group of middle-aged buddies reunite for a "guys' weekend" in a snowed-in cabin to eat chili, drink beer, and relive the good old days. Despite divorce, unemployment, and a stroke, spirits are high until Jessie, the wife of absent friend Adrian, shows up in his place. An epic battle of wits and stamina ensues: will the men win their right to an all-out guy fest, or will woman be crowned the stronger gender after all?

Get your tickets here!
