A madcap array of characters collide during Pope Paul VI's historic 1965 visit to New York City in the Tony Award-nominated black comedy The House of Blue Leaves. Among the play's many quirky characters, you'll find several nuns, a GI who's gone AWOL, a zookeeper with big Hollywood dreams and his wife, Bananas, a schizophrenic headed for the titular institution. Will all of these misfits find what they're looking for? Or will they need some extra blessings from the pope? Written by John Guare (Six Degrees of Separation), this stirring exploration of celebrity, madness and marriage won the 1971 Drama Critics Circle Award for Best American Play. Catch all the craziness and fun when The House of Blue Leaves takes the stage of Raven Theatre.
