"This is no way a play to be missed--simply a wondrous experience. Experience it."-New York Post

The Story:
The action of the play is told through the memory of the illegitimate son as he remembers the five women who raised him, his mother and four maidenaunts. He is only seven in 1936, the year his elderly uncle, a priest, returns after serving for 25 years as a missionary in a Ugandan leper colony. For the young boy, two other disturbances occur that summer. The sisters acquire their first radio whose music transforms them from correct Catholic women to shrieking, stomping banshees in their own kitchen. And he meets his father for the first time, a charming Welsh drifter who strolls up the lane and sweeps his mother away in an elegant dance across the fields. This haunting play is a tribute to the spirit and valor of the past and its people.
