PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The Freitags, a Jewish family living in 1939 Atlanta, are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season, than they are with the events that are taking place on the stage of world history. Living together in bachelor uncle Adolph's house are his widowed sister, Beulah (Boo) Levy, and his widowed sister-in-law, Reba. Boo is hoping to find a date to take her not-so-popular daughter, Lala, to Ballyhoo. Boo believes this may be Lala's last chance to find a good husband. One night Uncle Adolph brings home to dinner his new young assitant, Joe. Lala is impressed by Joe and hints broadly about being taken to Ballyhoo. Joe turns down Lala, which infuriates Boo. Things get even worse when Joe falls for Lala's cousin Sunny, Reba's daughter, who is home for Christmas vacation from Wellesley College. Events take several unexpected turns as the family gets pulled apart and then mended together again with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way.

This comedy, winner of the 1997 Tony Award for best new play, was written by Alfred Uhry, who also won the Pulitzer Prize and an Oscar for "Driving Miss Daisy."
