WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Indomitable matriarch Rita Lyons is at a major crossroads. Her husband is dying, her son is in a dubious relationship, and her daughter is barely holding it together. Tempers flare, words are exchanged, and secrets are revealed. Worst of all, Rita can't figure out how to redesign her living room. Nicky Silver, that "strange progeny of a coupling between Neil Simon and Edward Albee" (New York Times), brings another of his deliciously dysfunctional families to the stage in the scathingly funny Broadway smash that earned Tony Award and Drama Desk nominations.
