Theresa Carilli demonstrates how the Italian-American family communicates in a web of never-ending conflict with family members, devising new strategies to outwit one another. In The Promise, Joe attempts to reunite with his estranged brother Sal at their father's funeral, despite opposition from Joe's wife, Maria. In Legacy, Carilli juxtaposes a confrontation between two sisters with their husbands' plot to burn down the local church. With Big Boy and Approval, Carilli explores the enormous cost of love and sacrifice in the Italian American family. Comical and poignant, Carilli's plays capture the essence of the Italian-American familial relationships.
