This hilarious Broadway comedy surrounds trendy, married New York art dealers Barbara and David, whose domestic tranquility is shattered when Barbara’s uptight, Long Island sister and her straight-laced husband deposit the sisters’ grumpy, eccentric mother on the couple’s doorstep, so they can rush off to Buffalo to rescue their college student daughter from the horror of living only for sex. The comic sparks really begin to fly when the mother hits it off with the elderly minimalist artist who is the art dealers’ best client.
(Ages are what you can appear onstage.)

Martin: 40’s. Trudy’s husband. Straight laced, conservative, disapproving accountant.
