Time Period - Contemporary

Settings Of Play - Various locations in Queens and New Jersey.  All of these locations are suggested with a set piece or two - a tailoring mirror and a rack of fine sportcoats for the clothing store, two stools and maybe a steering wheel for the car, a bed an a vanity for a bedroom, etc. Light and sound will play an important role in establishing all of these locations. The play is designed to be played without an Intermission, but if desired, one can be inserted between scenes 4 and 5.  No, the script is not littered with typos. Vinnie and Ann-Marie have a very "unique" way of phrasing things, that's all.

Meet Vinnie and Anne Marie, an all American, upwardly mobile Mafia couple who have it all: a beautiful home, plenty of money and success Vinnie is about to become a made man. On the eve of his official induction into the crime family, his world crashes down in a chaotic series of darkly comic events. He commits the worst transgression imaginable when he accidently runs over the Boss's six year old heir. The boy is barely injured but Vinnie is in deep trouble. His fanatic efforts to remedy his blunder reveal the high price of being part of the "Family." 

Published with Any Friend of Percy D'Angelino Is a Friend of Mine and Men in Suits in Men in Suits: Three Plays About the Mafia.

FAMILY VALUES was originally presented as a staged reading at the Westwood Playhouse in Los Angeles on October 18, 1993 under the auspices of the Patchett Kaufman Entertainment Theatre play reading series. It was directed by Dan Lauria.
