About the show...
The setting is the Hanson home on Steiner Street in San Francisco, around 1910.  In turn-of-the-century San Francisco, Mama, with Papa and their motley assortment of eccentric relatives, friends, and boarders, raise her four children through childhood, as the kids keep everyone in pleasant turmoil in this heartwarming story. Mama’s compassion and wisdom prevail through illness, poverty, romance, life-changing decisions of her children and sisters, and the arrival of her Uncle Chris and his female companion.
