Holding a family together is harder than it looks, especially when tragedy strikes. Peter and Raul lead a happy life with their adopted son, Chris. When Peter's mother Emma needs help, the obligation falls to Raul, and the irascible Emma doesn't make it easy on her son-in-law. The unexpected arrival of Chris' birth father and his demand for full custody of his biological child only complicate things. Can Peter and Raul keep it together? Joe Elvis and Bart Barker's new play Famalee is about an unconventional family's fight to remain whole. Famalee is performed at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 6 p.m. Sunday (October 20 to 30) at the Ivory Theatre (7620 Michigan Avenue; Tickets are $20 to $25, with cabaret seating available for $65.
