Story


Thanksgiving get-together for the eccentric Turner clan, presided over by eminent scholar and patriarch, Poppy (Peter Bogdanovich), turns into a disastrous holiday weekend when black sheep daughter Nina (Alicia Witt) pays her first visit home in 15 years. Nina immediately clashes with stepmother, Deborah (Cheryl Hines), and competes with her siblings (Ashton Holmes and Sonya Walger) for Poppy's affection - and money. Over three days, the family gradually disintegrates over who will get Poppy's money - only to discover Poppy has his own bad news to share...

"Cold Turkey" is about what happens when you set a match to a powder keg. It's about honesty. It's about love. It's about trying your best. Ultimately, it's about the kind of emotional terrorism that only families can inflict upon one another.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..well-acted, and at times even well-observed, but about 20 minutes of the material actually matters, and the rest is mere putter..”
by Noel Murray [The Dissolve]
“..wicked dialogue filling in backstory and an ambivalent ending, writer-director Will Slocombe's script feels fit for the stage, where some of the more theatrical performances might translate better..”
by Annlee Ellingson [LA Times]
