Plot summary:
Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man named Lucas – from Ohio.  His parents (Mal and Alice) are coming to dinner to meet the family, and it’s every father’s nightmare.  Now, Gomez Addams and the whole family have worlds collide on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s normal boyfriend and his parents. Will love triumph, or will everyone go home vaguely depressed?  If we move toward the darkness, we might find love and acceptance.  For when it is dark enough, we can see the stars.
