The Pulitzer and Tony Award Winning play by America's great comic playwright is a memory play set in Yonkers in 1942. Bella is 35 years old and living at home with her stern mother, Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'r do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady's doorstep. He is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. The boys are led to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hood in a strange new world called Yonkers.
