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.

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

Storyline: The Aunts arrive unexpectedly.
