Picture this: South Philadelphia, summer, 1973″. One house occupied by Fran Geminiani, a laborer, and his son, Francis, a Harvard student; the other by a boisterous, earthy divorcee named Bunny and her asthmatic son, Herschel. It is the eve of Francis’s birthday, and suddenly he is paid a surprise visit by two friends from college, a brother and sister named Hastings, who set up a tent in the backyard. The friends, Randy and Judith, are wealthy, attractive and from an elevated social background that contrasts painfully with Francis’s own humble circumstances. A series of lively, funny, touching and revealing incidents which occur in fast moving, antic succession until the final, joyous moments of the play.
This is a play that comes alive in performance… Mr. lnnaurato is a playwright with his own extraordinary voice and the imaginative talent of a conjuror.” – New York Times
… a rambunctious, hilarious, touching, quite beautiful play.”

SAY GAY CABARET
SUNDAY June 19, 2022
Nutley Little Theatre believes in inclusion and being a welcoming and safe space and we support our LGBTQIA + members and patrons!
To show support, we are putting together a SAY GAY CABARET! – an evening of song and laughs, celebrating the LGBTQIA+ Community on June 19th at 8pm at the Nutley Little Theatre 47 Erie Place, Nutley, NJ
**A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to organizations fighting Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education Bill”, more commonly known as the Don’t Say Gay Bill.**
Figuring out who we are and how we identify is often difficult enough without legislation trying to tell people when and where they can talk about it. A portion of the proceeds will go to help the legal teams fighting the Don’t Say Gay Bill down in Florida.
This event, unlike our regular stage productions is a BYOB event! We welcome you to come raise your glass and join us for a night of laughs with an eclectic mix of songs both old and new!
