Grandie lives in a large Connecticut Victorian house with her witty brother a retired art historian; her elderly maid/companion, and her widowed daughter an artist. Inflation has taken its toll on their wealth, but Grandie's exacting standards remain unaltered. It is Thanksgiving and the three grandchildren visit: a divorced mother who lost custody of her children, a divorced father with custody of his children and a new fiancee, and the youngest who has just separated from her husband. All have requests to ask of the matriarch. Eva Le Gallienne, Kim Hunter and Sheppard Strudwick starred on Broadway in this heart warming look at challenges to the modern family.
