A classic comedy by Albert Innaurato
Directed by Richard Baker
July 8-23, 2005
The play takes place in the backyard of adjoining houses in South Philadelphia: one house occupied by Fran Geminiani, a laborer, and his son, Francis, a Harvard student; the other by a boisterous, earthy divorcee named Bunny and her fat, asthmatic son, Herschel. It is the eve of Francis’ twenty-first birthday, and suddenly he is paid a surprise visit by two friends from college, spawning a series of lively, funny, touching and revealing incidents occur in fast-moving, antic succession until the final, joyous moments of the play.
Winner of the Obie Award. “…a rambunctious, hilarious, touching, quite beautiful play.” -NY Magazine.
