By America's great comic playwright, this memory play is set in Yonkers in 1942. Bella is 35 years old, mentally challenged, and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'er-do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady's doorstep. He is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother and a small-time hoodlum, in a strange new world called Yonkers.
JAY – 15 “and a half” (He insists on the “and a half.”)
ARTY — 13 and a half
EDDIE — their father, 41
BELLA — mid-thirties, neat and sweet and pretty
GRANDMA KURNITZ — Eddie and Bella's mother, a big woman, buxom, with a strong and erect body, 70-odd years old
LOUIE — her other son, 36, doesn't look like he'd be the hugging type
AUNT GERT — mid-to-late thirties, another of Grandma Kurnitz's children
