"Just remember kid, you can quicker get back a million dollars that was stole than a word that you gave away."

....A lawyer narrates and advises characters in this tragic classic play of the 1950's set in a tenement not far from the Brooklyn Bridge.

....All is well with longshoreman Uncle Eddie, kind-hearted Aunt Beatrice and live-in niece Catherine....until the secret guests from Italy arrive and Uncle Eddie turns from generous and welcoming to jealous, difficult and self-serving resulting in disastrous encounters and dark consequences.

....Much intensity among intriguing characters!

(Was unaware Miller was married to Marilyn Monroe for 5 years)
