a comedy by
JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY
directed by Jerry Miller
In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti. Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother, a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion. This feisty romantic comedy comes from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.
AUDIENCE ADVISORY: Explicit language.
