The play revolves around Nick, a 32-year-old single Italian-American man who dutifully has dinner with his grandparents every Sunday. At an unscheduled visit, Nick announces that he is leaving New Jersey to take a job in Seattle. To his grandparents, whom Nick calls “the loudest people I’ve ever met,” they have already lost Nick's parents to distant cities and his desire to move makes no sense. The grandparents take his announcement as a declaration of war and pull out all the stops, including match-making, outrageous schemes and wild dinner parties to keep him home. The antics that follow are hilarious and touching and all add to a wonderful night of theatre.
