Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Play, and the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, this funny and wrenching family drama also won theatergoers' hearts. While rich in the comedy for which Simon is famous, it grapples with the most painful family scar - what happens to children in the absence of love.
During the Second World War, two young brothers are sent to their own German front - living in Yonkers with their formidable Grandmother. A refugee and widow, Grandma has steeled her heart against the world and her coldness and cruelty have crippled her children. The boys' father lacks self-esteem, their Aunt Gert suffers from a nervous speech impediment, their uncle has become a petty gangster, and their Aunt Bella has never quite grown up. Her mind, the boys say, is "closed for repairs." but Bella is warm and bubbly, hungry for experience and starved for affection. Her search for love leads her to all the wrong places and to an unforgettable, heartrending showdown with her mother.
