By America's great comic playwright, this hilarious and heartwarming memory play is set in a Yonkers in 1942. Bella is 35-years-old, mentally challenged and living at home with her mother, the stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, ne'r-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 only have each other as they are left to contend with Grandma, Bella and her secret romance, and her brother Louie, a small-time hoodlum, in a strange new world called Yonkers.
