The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare

"A brilliant play, beautifully fashioned. Wacky and sometimes sad with combined hilarity, poignancy, outrageous stage aside and tragedy." - New York Daily News; "Enchantingly zany and original farce." - The New York Times

About The Event

Artie Shaughnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory. Toiling by day as a zookeeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his wares at piano bars in Queens, New York, where he lives with his wife, Bananas, much to the chagrin of Artie’s downstairs mistress, Bunny Flingus, who will sleep with him anytime, but refuses to cook until they are married. On the day the Pope is making his first visit to the city, Artie’s son Ronny goes AWOL from Fort Dix, stowing a homemade bomb intended to blow up the Pope in Yankee Stadium. Also arriving are Artie’s old school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, Billy Einhorn, with starlet girlfriend in tow, who holds the key to Artie’s dreams of getting out of Queens and away from the life he so despises. But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of ordinary lives. The House of Blue Leaves takes us on a whirling, farcical trip through the human heart and lands with an explosive climax…literally!
