The House of Blue Leaves is set in Sunnyside, Queens on October 4, 1965, the day Pope Paul VI visited New York City. Artie, a songwriting zookeeper, is joined at various times in his apartment by his mentally ill wife Bananas, his girlfriend Bunny, his AWOL son Ronnie, the glamorous Corrinna Stroller (a movie star with a hearing loss), Artie’s old partner Billy and several nuns who are trying to see the Pope. To say that chaos ensues doesn’t even begin to describe the dysfunction going on between characters.
