New York City
A zookeeper/nightclub pianist struggles to improve his lot in life despite his hypochondriac wife, insistent mistress, homicidal son, absent best friend and a gaggle of nuns. The clock is ticking and the opportunities to be rich, famous, and successful – or at least geographically near to those enjoying such fortune – are slowly expiring. Against the backdrop of an overseas war, one apartment in Queens becomes, briefly, the battleground for an entire empire.
Presented as part of the Midtown International Theatre Festival.
