The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare
Its 1965, the day Pope Paul VI came to New York City. For Artie Shaughnessy of Sunnyside, Queens, this historic moment is an omen for change. Artie dreams of leaving his zookeeper job to pursue a life as a songwriter in Hollywood with his new girlfriend, Bunny. However, a few things stand in his way, such as his wife, Bananas; a GI son drafted into Vietnam gone AWOL; a grieving movie producer; and a group of over-excited nuns. When these worlds collide, hilarity ensues. This dark comedy explores the theme of the American Dream at a moment in U.S. history ripe with change.
