This poignant Obie Award-winning comedy unfolds in New York City on the day the Pope is expected to visit. Hearts are palpitating in the sleepy borough of Queens, but not entirely on account of His Holiness. Bunny Flingus, a femme-fatale from Flushing (or thereabouts) is stirring things up in the quiet, unfulfilled life of aspiring songwriter Artie Shaughnessy. Artie longs to leave his unhappy marriage, elope with Bunny, and write a hit song that will top the charts. Download and start listening now!

    " I was in a production of House of Blue Leaves in college (around 1990, I think). I played one of the nuns. Our guest artist for that semester was David Lander (Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley), who played the lead. What a great experience. I really love this play. "

    " In a production of this right now - funny but really sad. I like the theme of celebrity that Guare is clearly focused on. Very relevant. "

    " I read this as I was revising my play from last year and I found a lot of similarities: farcical tone, monologuing, lust for some sort of fame, and from a review of the 85 production a comparison to DAY OF THE LOCUST. Really well done and fun to read. "
