Youse Needs to Gets to Knows Everyones


A day without sunshine is like, you know, night. Steve Martin


In theatre, a farce is a comedy that aims at entertaining the audience through situations that are highly exaggerated, extravagant, and thus improbable. Farce is also characterized by physical humor, the use of deliberate absurdity  or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances. Furthermore, a farce is also often set in one particular location, where all events occur.


Time: Christmas Eve 1980

Place: Grandpa Carlo’s walkup Brooklyn, NY—the home where The Uncles grew up.

Storyline: The Aunts arrive unexpectedly.


Cast:        Uncle Eddy: Endearing scoundrel. Twice married to Doris—and others. Think Joe Peschi

                Uncle Vincenzo: Different from the rest. Think Father Brown on PBS.

                Grandpa Carlo: The Uncles still give him trouble. Grandma Sophia recently died. Think Don Corleone.

                Nephew Michael: 30 something.  Grew up with the Uncles. Adds his recollections. Think Wally Cleaver.  

                Aunt Doris: Ex beauty queen from Texas. Big everything. Think Ann Richards
