The holidays are over and a new year has begun. It’s time to break away from the winter drabs. Are you ready to laugh? The Foggy Valley Gang returns to the stage promising to bring hilarity to your doldrums. Are you tired of the “same old, same old”? So is Mama Goodin and she is ready to tell the world in this new, humorous fiasco, “Sick and Tired”.

While visiting Maimie Kaye’s Beauty Salon, Mama Goodin has a sudden attack and collapses. Due to her stinginess, her son, Spoolie Goodin with the help of Rev. Clyde, decide to transport her to the hospital in the Goodin family hearse from the B.A. Goodin Funeral Parlor, Taxidermy and Wedding Chapel. Mama is greeted at Foggy Valley Memorial Hospital by her two granddaughters, “Candy-stripers” – Ima and Ura Goodin. Mama is treated by the strange, absent-minded, Dr.Watt. He is assisted by Nurse Attila, who gets her name honestly. Upon her admittance to the hospital, Mama’s records are accidentally switched. Amidst the crazy antics of a doting family, Dr. Watt delivers bad news of Mama’s misdiagnosed health. The decision is made for Mama to go home and spend the rest of her days being cared for by her idiotic, grief-stricken family and friends. Home visits from Dr. Watt and Nurse Attila continue. Despite the diagnosis, Mama is determined to live. After receiving the colossal hospital bill, the Goodin’s decide to do a Benefit Telethon for Mama hosted by Rev. Clyde.

Expect twists and turns on this rollercoaster comedy. Close friends, Clementine and Flo, act as home nursemaids for Mama. Flo is always looking to make Mama more comfortable, no matter what she has to do including “pulling the plug” if necessary. Buffoon grandson, Virgil, and Marge and Cedric (butler and maid) are on hand to lend Mama a helping hand. Of course, Otis Purdy, the security guard is there to protect Mama, and Clovis Bodine is quick to cheer her with his Elvis impersonation. Thanks to the OCD janitor, Author McDaver, mama is guaranteed not to get staph infection. The Benefit Telethon showcases the zany talents of The Goodin Family and friends assisted by Rosco, the paranoid cousin, acting as cameraman. As always, there will be a surprise ending and moral to be learned.
