Rose, an elderly German-Jewish New Yorker, is a screamer. Approaching the big 8-0, she has managed to scare away an array of caretakers with her overwhelming antics. That is until her busy psychoanalyst daughter hires Maria, a young Puerto Rican woman, who proves to be Rose's match.

 

When Lydia realizes how close the two have become, she suspects Maria of being a clever grifter, but are her suspicions based on truth, or merely produced by jealously?

 

Alternately funny, moving and disturbing, this play raises questions of trust and family obligation.
