By Tom Dudzick

Directed by Scott J. Sumerak

"Over the Tavern,? Tom Dudzick?s beguiling family comedy, is set in Buffalo during that most idealized period of 20th Century America, the Eisenhower years of the 1950s. We meet the Pazinskis: Mom, Dad and their four children, Eddie, Annie, Georgie and the hero of our tale, 12-year-old Rudy, a precocious kid who?s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. Rudy believes God put us on earth to ?have fun,? and he?s trying to figure out why his family isn?t having any. Visit www.bignoise.org.
