ABOUT THE SHOW
Wednesday Addams, the princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart man from a respectable family—her family’s worst nightmare. If that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday asks her father Gomez to help her hide this from her mother Morticia. With Uncle Fester, Pugsley, Lurch, and Thing, nothing is guaranteed to go smoothly as the whole family hosts a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
