This beautifully written family drama shows how four generations of Italian American women deal with crisis. The women gather in the kitchen of the DiAngelo's Brooklyn home while the dying family patriarch is in the downstairs bedroom playing Caruso records. There are five superb roles for actresses and the author has a wonderful ability to find the humor in dire situations.
"One of the best written family plays in the last few years. It is funny and harrowing at almost the same moment. Its characters are composites of bravado, fear, selfishness, love, ignorance, and the will to survive in a word, us. " - The New York Daily News "A warm, funny play." - United Press International
