The story revolves around the problems of a middle-aged couple living on Second Avenue on the Upper East Side of New York City.  Mel Edison has just lost his job after many years and now he and his wife have to cope with being unemployed in middle age. This occurs during a heat wave, a prolonged garbage strike, noisy
neighbors, street noise and even a daylight robbery.

Barry Lew and Louise Patrick star as Mel and Edna Edison.  Other cast members are:  Cathy Smith, Sharyn Waters, Susan Weliky and Grant Willis.

"Creates an atmosphere of casual cataclysm, an everyday urban purgatory of copelessness from which laughter seems to be released like vapor from the city's manholes." - Time
"A gift for taking a grave subject and, without losing sight of its basic seriousness, treating it with hearty but sympathetic humor...A talent for writing a wonderful funny line...full of humor and intelligence. Fine fun." - New York Post


almost 200 productions since 1974
