The House of Blue Leaves​


John Guare

January 16 - February 7, 2009

directed by Marge Uhlarik-Boller

produced by Jim Liesz

Set in Sunnyside, New York in 1965 on the day Pope Paul VI visited NYC, this black comedy features nuns, a political bombing, a GI headed for Vietnam, a zookeeper who dreams of making it big in Hollywood as a songwriter and his wife, a schizophrenic destined for the institution that provides the plays title. A play of hilarious absurdity and delicate, ridiculous dreams, The House of Blue Leaves is as timely as it is poignant.
