Join the 2nd Act Players this November for a unique look at the American immigrant experience in this all-new, two-act drama, New Year’ Eve at Grandma’s House.
An Italian-American family gathers to celebrate New Year’s Eve 1960, its first without the family patriarch. The country is changing with the election of the first Catholic president and the family is changing as well, its younger members wondering what they should do to be accepted as being truly American.
Must they sacrifice their heritage? What does becoming ‘American’ mean? And can the family stay together as turbulent events swirl around them?
The 2nd Act Players staged a one-act version of this poignant drama in 2013, it’s first performance.
Now, come see this new two-act version, with shows the first three weekends in November.
Watch the video here for a taste of what you’ll see. Performance photos are of the 2013 cast and crew, taken by photographer Mark Gordon.
