Grey Gardens




A new musical based on the documentary of the same name, about Edith Bouvier Beale and "Little" Edie.


Story:

Edith Bouvier Beale is throwing a party to announce the engagement of her daughter Edie to Joe Kennedy, but a telegram breaks up the party. Thirty years later, their home, Grey Gardens is in shambles and the two women argue, relive moments from their past and talk about escape, though it becomes obvious they never will.
