Couch revolves the home of a suburban couple and their gender confused five-year-old. Things get more complicated when a pair of sexy thugs from Reno enter the home and threaten the sanity of the family.

The cast of Mother's Couch includes members of The Bat's resident acting company, The Furballs (named for a species of demons in Mac Wellman's play, Sincerity Forever), including Garrett Domina, Paula Ehrenberg, Paul Siemens, Chime Serra, Sam Tsao and Stephanie Weldon.
