Leaving the Bronx for a day at the lake is a rare treat for Iris and her close-knit extended family. Despite Papi’s instructions to pack light, Mami brings enough food for a week and Iris sneaks in the family dog – after all El Exigente is part of the family! The drive to the lake is filled with all sorts of misadventure, but the family finally arrives at their destination, only to discover there are … No Dogs Allowed! Good humor prevails as everyone comes together to save the day in this warm and cheery family venture.
The cast features Seth Caikowski (Juan), Cailin Doran (Mami), Rachel Graham (El Exigente), Sarah Grover (Iris), Sonia Justl (Shorty), Norrell Moore (Carmen), Matthew Peters (Papi) and Tyrell Rae (Don Joe)
