Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day becomes slightly more complicated when all of their parents unexpectedly show up to help! Can a two-bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that's about to happen? 'Things My Mother Taught Me' takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents are passing their best lessons on to their children without even knowing it.

Character Descriptions:

OLIVIA KEEGAN - ­ mid-late 20s; a perfectionist trying to relax (a little), focused and full of energy.

KAREN KEEGAN - late 50s-60s; Olivia's mother, an immigrant and wrestling with her expectations of her daughter as she enters a new stage of life.

CARTER KEEGAN ­ - late 50s-60s; Olivia's father, the consummate WASP, passed his energy on to his daughter.

GABE LAWSON ­ - mid-late 20s; Olivia's partner, the go-with-the-flow to her spreadsheets.

LYDIA LAWSON - late 50s-60s; Gabe's mother, enjoying empty nesting but itching to ensure fledgling Gabe heeds her advice...whether he asks for it or not.

WYATT LAWSON - late 50s-60s; Gabe's father, king of dad jokes, very much looking forward to bonding with the Keegan's.

MAX MIROWSKI - 40s-60s; Polish accent; building super; may be played by a man or woman.
