SYNOPSIS:
Nick is a single Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents have retired and moved to Florida, but that doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey—he sees both sets of grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This routine is broken when he tells them he's been offered his dream job, which unfortunately will take him away from his beloved but annoying grandparents. The news doesn't sit so well. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle for a job? Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best to keep him around, including asking the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare to dinner as bait. We won't give the ending away here.

Role # 1 - NICK CRISTANO Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Should appear to be in his late twenties. Nick leads us through his memories of his last few weeks with his grandparents in NJ. He is single and an up and coming marketing executive. He is earnest and self-conscious, excitable, and, okay, a tad self-centered as he relates to his very doting, very loud, very opinionated family. He has a very big decision to make and he feels the stress weighing on him.

Role # 2 - FRANK GIANELLI Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Should appear to be in his late 60’s to 80’s. Nick’s maternal Grandfather, Frank was sent to the US alone at age 14. He worked hard and built a life as a carpenter. His motto is “tengo famiglia”, which means much more than “I have a family”…he firmly believes in the three F’s….family, faith, and food. He is a rock. Traditional, solid, strong… he hates slowing down and hates the life changes that time brings. (Will need to learn to “play” the mandolin).

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Should appear to be in late 60’s to 80’s. Nicks’ maternal Grandmother Aida also has a motto: “Mangia, Mangia!”, which is “Eat Eat!” Love means food to Aida who adores Frank “her baby”. Everything centers around veal, tiramisu and the table for her. To Aida everyone is hungry when they enter her house and every crisis can be smoothed with food. Aida is very traditional in her faith, her devotion to family, her everyday warmth, and her simple wisdom.

Should appear to be in late 60’s to 80’s. Nick’s paternal Grandfather, Nunzio, is one of the “loudest people Nick has ever met”. Nunzio is not afraid of pizazz in his wardrobe or his speech…in fact he talked his way into a life long job on the line at “Ford’s”. Nunzio is passionate about everything, but especially his wife Emma, whom he adores, and Nick of course! Nunzio must hide a serious illness from those he loves to protect them.

Emma is a groovy granny and a force of nature…she’s no follower but leads Nunzio through nearly 50 years of marriage. She is an opportunist, and a “doer”. She is an enthusiast and believes in the power of prayer as a way to guide her life. She concocts the plan to keep Nick in NJ by fixing him up with Caitlin O’Hare. She truly is the “fizz” in the Coca-Cola.
