The Story:

It’s the summer of 1942 in Yonkers, New York. Eddie and Arty are left in the care of their stern and bristly grandmother while their father attempts to earn fast money to pay off debts. While there, the boys experience family in an entirely new and bizarre way as they relate with their love-starved aunt and their obscure and mysterious uncle who appears to have ties to the mob. As the summer goes on, the boys’ presence becomes a catalyst for emotional healing in a home where affection is nearly absent and people are prepared for the hard life through hard-nosed discipline and correction.

Boys ages 12 - 18 as well as male and female performers ages 25 to 70 are welcome to attend the auditions. Here's an approximate age break down of the characters:
· Arty - 13 years old
· Jay - 16 years old
· Eddie - 41 years old
· Bella - mid thirties
· Grandma Kurnitz - mid-seventies
· Gert - mid to late thirties
· Louie - mid thirties
