“An argument a day keeps the doctor away,” says Abe Dreyfus (Rodger Hoopman). At 73 and in his curmudgeonly prime, Abe is honest to a fault about his love for his daughter Alice (Julie Bock) and his tolerance of her husband Jerry (Walt Thompson), with whom he now lives. When Jerry's mother Mildred (Monique McKisson) loses her home, belongings and pet bird to a house fire, she moves in with the young couple, too. Insanity ensues. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 9/22. $17-$19. Chautauqua Playhouse at the La Sierra Community Center, 5325 Engle Rd. in Carmichael; (916) 489-7529; www.cplayhouse.org.
