WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A.C.T. favorite Marco Barricelli (artistic director of Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Vigil at A.C.T.) and Stratford Festival star Seana McKenna (Phèdre at A.C.T.) return to lead the cast of Napoli!, a hilarious new translation of Eduardo De Filippo's poignant Italian comedy. During the chaotic days of World War II in Naples, an enterprising woman sets up a small-time black market business to keep her family afloat. She prospers, but maybe a bit too much--compelling her husband to ask hard questions about morality, civility, and the state of their society. De Filippo's masterful blend of humor and pathos tells the story of an unforgettable and wildly entertaining family determined to survive at any cost.
