About this show

The Milkman's Sister takes place inside a Bronx tenement during the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962 when nuclear annihilation was no longer an abstraction, but just hours away. Despite a historic last minute save from atomic murder, the Spinner/Furfante household could not have been more devastated had the bomb exploded inside their 3rd floor apartment. The nerve-wracking countdown to their impending deaths unleashed an explosion of heroism, cowardice and delusion for an overweight housewife, an unemployed milkman, an angry supervisor of hospital linen and their neighbors. Featuring John F. Kennedy and a game of Limbo Rock you will not soon forget.
