Set in 1964-68, the play takes place in the basement kitchen of the East Cornucopia Lutheran Church of the Prairie in Minnesota. The play takes a playful and sentimental look at the typical happenings in a Lutheran Church, as well as some of their Norwegian customs. Everyone can identify with these characters and the funny and touching issues they deal with.

Characters include:
Vivian- approx 60-70 and the matriarch of the kitchen. She runs the kitchen and her decisions are final, does not like change or the city.

Mavis- late 50s, a farmers wife and natural hard worker, a no-nonsense person, loved by all and knows the genealogy of everyone in town.

Karin- mid 40s, a fabulous cook, very stylish but yet conservative. Second in command in the kitchen.

Signe- 19-20 years old, Karin’s daughter. Spunky but respectful, just started college at the University of MN. Brings an air of the “newer” thinking coming about in 1964 while still holding to her conservative roots.

Pastor Gunderson- mid 40s and has just married a young woman from “the cities”. He comes from a family of pastors, and his favorite place in the church is the kitchen.
