The play takes place in a brownstone on the Upper East Side.
Cornelia Cunningham (Maureen Anderman) is looking over the contents of the room she is in, they all have tags on the. Everything is being sold. Cornelia is extremely wealthy. She is moving into a retirement home. The money from the sale and other assets she has will be given to charity.
Her lawyer Harvey Abel (Joe Paulik) is very formal with her. He won’t call her by her first name even though she insists. Harvey feesl she should think over her will. He is afraid someone might contest it. The firm has received a letter from Walker “Scott” Williams (Gabriel Brown). In the letter he claims he is her grandson an that her daughter is his mother. Mr. Williams is African American. They think he found out about her from an article from the paper. Walker comes to visit her. He is smooth talking.
Cornelia tells her house keeper Agnes Munger (Pamela Dunlap) to make diner for everyone.
To add to the confusion, another person arrives. Jessica Worth (Kahyun Kim) is a student from Julliard. She has come to look at the piano Cornelia wants to donate to the school. The piano can play Cole Porter songs.
What happens, go see this delightful show. Is Walker her grandson? What happen to her family? These are some of the questions that will be answered.
Maureen Anderman and Joe Paulik did a terrific job.
This is one show you will enjoy seeing.
