Ok, So's Here's Whats it About

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. 


Time: Christmas Eve 1980

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

Storyline: The Aunts arrive unexpectedly.



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

                Uncle Franco: Ex NYPD cop. The mature one. Formerly married to Angie. Think Robert De Niro.

                Uncle Gio: Sells cars. Formerly married to Ginger. Think Italian Steve Martin.

                Uncle Sal: Owns a pizzeria. Formerly married to Sue. Think Sonny & Cher.

                Uncle Romeo: Wants to be an actor. Formerly married to Sonya. They met at a communist party rally. Think Al Pacino 

                Uncle Earl: The missing person that no one really missed at all.

                Uncle Vincenzo: Different from the rest. 

                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

                Aunt Ginger: Ex PSA stewardess. Think Barbara Streisand in boots.

                Aunt Sonya:  Russian. Former Bolshevik. Now Democrat. Named after Sonya Rostova in War and Peace. Think Boris & Natasha

                Aunt Angie:  Beautician from the Bronx. Think Marisa Tomei

                 Aunt Sue:  She thought of God as the Great White Buffalo, and Sal as Beelzebub

                Aunt Wanda:  Let the Sun Shine In--preferrably through the hole in Uncle Earl's head. . .the one she and Mary Ann planned to add to the existing one he already had through which his brains had obviously fallen out years ago.

                Mary Ann:  Wanda's friend. Fellow member of the 4H Club.  Took the red-eye back from Atlanta after Earl put Wanda in the ICU.
