Italian-American immigrant life in the 1950s textures this searing drama of love and revenge. Longshoreman Eddie Carbone is devoted to his wife, Beatrice, and to his niece, Catherine. When Beatrice’s impoverished Sicilian cousins enter the U.S. illegally in the hope of finding work, Eddie gives them a helping hand. But when Catherine and one of the cousins fall in love, Eddie’s affection for his niece turns into obsession.

Show dates are Sept. 26-28 at 7:30 p.m., and Sept. 29 at 2 p.m.
