The night after their grandfather's funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbaum, a "Real Jew" who is volatile, self-assure and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man. Stuck in the middle is Liam's brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the way. When Liam stakes claim to a treasured family heirloom, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith and legacy ensues. This runaway Off Broadway hit was hailed by The New York Times as "the best comedy of the season."
This comedy about marriage, fidelity, adulterous longings and existential panic takes place in Leonard and Dinah's farmhouse where slow moving disintegration is at work. Rooms are drifting into each other and trees have taken root indoors. Leonard is an actor who hasn't worked in eleven years; Dinah is an overworked costume designer who can't dress herself. They have invited their new neighbors, an overworked editor who delights in reciting nursery rhymes and his beautiful movie starlet wife, for dinner. Things explode when a friend who is a successful movie director, drops in. Old memories stir and new passions kindle as vegetables and Dinah's costumes fly.
