Features Ellen Horst as Grandma Kurnitz

By America's great comic playwright, this memory play is set in Yonkers in 1942. The hit Broadway production featured Irene Worth, Mercedes Ruehl, and Kevin Spacey in award-winning performances. Bella is thirty-five 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, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.

Lieutenant Colombo and the doctor engage in a cat-and-mouse duel of wits as Colombo whittles away at the doctor’s so called perfect murder, leading to an exciting finish!
