Set in 1965 in Queens NY, The House of Blue Leaves is a unique blend of farce, dark comedy and drama. It is both wacky and poignant . Zoo attendant Artie Shaughnessy is a failed songwriter with visions of fame and glory. He copes with an overly medicated wife, an impatient mistress, an AWOL and homicidal son being pursued by military police, and beer-drinking nuns on the day the Pope visits New York City. His girlfriend convinces Artie to call his old school buddy Billy Einhorn, a famous film director from Los Angeles, to finagle a job writing music for Billy’s movies in a desperate attempt to find stardom. Winner of the Obie and Drama Critics’ awards for Best American Play.
