 After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut to introduce his fiancé to his charming, but eccentric family. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it. The entire house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog hasn't been fed in five years, and Avery's Grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family, or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggests that you can, in fact, go home again... You just never know what you're going to find.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
AVERY SUTTON: Late 20s to early 30s, bright, likable, perhaps a little nerdy
EVELYN SUTTON: 50s-60s, Avery’s mother, lovely and gracious, somewhat oblivious to everything around her
STANFORD P. SUTTON: 50s – 60s, Avery’s father, great warmth and dignity, also somewhat oblivious
AUNT ESTHER:  Late 40s – early 60s, the ultimate homemaker, sweet, daft, and surprisingly insightful
GILLIAN MOORE:  20s, Avery’s fiancé, beautiful – but with an edge, a rhinestone wanting to be a diamond
NANA: 97 years old, looks every minute of it, half deaf, half blind, and foul mouthed

A Short Note on the Sutton Family
It is extremely important to note that the Suttons, despite their somewhat lack of sanity, are basically the sweetest people you will ever meet. Even when they say or do the most outrageous things, they do so with absolute innocence and sincerity. None of these people would ever hurt a fly. At least not on purpose.

Okay, maybe Nana.

They are light and gracious and loving. They are chintz and lace and Martha Stewart.

Underneath this is where the craziness lies.
