1997 Tony Award Winner for Best Play by the author of Driving Miss Daisy

It’s December 1939 and Adolph Freitag, his sister Boo, and nieces Lala and Sunny
- a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor - are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ball sponsored by their restrictive country club. Adolph’s worker, Joe Farkas, is an attractive bachelor and an Eastern European Jew, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence. His pres- ence prompts college student Sunny to examine intra-ethnic bias, her Jewish identity (or lack thereof), and the beliefs with which she’s been raised.
