SYNOPSIS:

Book by Tom Dudzik

In this hilarious, heartfelt sequel to Over the Tavern, the Pazinski family has left the conservative 1950s for the rebellious 1960s. But prior knowledge of this working-class family is not a prerequisite to appreciating their ongoing trials and triumphs. As Apollo 11 is about to land on the moon, the family gathers to honor their late father’s memory, and they quickly become entangled in each others’ problems — Rudy is re-thinking the priesthood, Eddie is preparing for fatherhood and Vietnam, and Annie is contemplating divorce as their mother Ellen considers a new romance. There’s rarely a quiet moment in the Pazinski household as they hurtle towards the next decade.

DIRECTED BY A. ROBERT DIONNE

 

CHARACTERS:

  • ELLEN PAZINSKI: Female, 45-55 / The widowed matriarch of the Pazinski clan, still living “over the tavern” that is the family business.
  • RUDY PAZINSKI: Male, 18-25 / Ellen’s 22 y/o son; he is impassioned, devout, and confused, but in the wrappings of a comedian, the class clown, the smart-ass little brother; quick and witty; currently attending a Catholic seminary in preparation to become a priest, he cares deeply about his family and about the anti-war movement.
  • GEORGIE PAZINSKI: Male, 20-25 / 23 years old; Ellen’s son; a developmentally challenged man-child with the mental and emotional age of about a five years old; a sweet young man in generally good spirits, he communicates with noises and gestures and a precious few garbled words; he has a determined single focus on the things he cares about.
  • EDDIE PAZINSKI: Male, 20-30 / 25 years old; Ellen’s son. Eddie got drafted, and into the Army and is happy to serve; he’s home right now with his pregnant wife Maureen. He is tough, the older brother-bully of the family; Eddie is not as smart or thoughtful as Rudy, nor as funny and quick-witted; but he wants to do what is right, and he is unfailingly loyal.
  • ANNIE PAZINSKI: Female, 20-30 / 26 years old; Ellen’s daughter; she has a smart, sarcastic tone, and she typically has spent a lot of energy feeling sorry for herself; now that she is in a failing marriage, she has real reason to do so; she feels trapped, and doesn’t know whether or not her family can help her.
  • MAUREEN PAZINSKI: Female, 20-30 / 26 years old; Ellen’s daughter-in- law; Eddie’s wife who is about halfway through her pregnancy; she is attractive, sexual, and a blue-collar diner waitress; Maureen is as coarse and foul-mouthed and tough as her husband Eddie, but she loves him.
  • WALTER FRONZAK: Male, 50-59 / Ellen’s employee/suitor; a friendly man who works at the family tavern and has been around the family for many years; Walter is low-key, but determined; he’s genuinely kind and thoughtful; now, he has fallen for Ellen and wants to marry her.
