Trigiani’s latest domestic drama is the story of the Palazzinis, a boisterous Italian clan led by feuding brothers Dominic and Mike, set in post-WWII South Philadelphia. Nicky Castone, an orphaned Palazzini cousin, has lived with Dominic and his family since he was five years old. Nicky drives a cab for his uncle Dom’s company by day and works as a prompter at the Borelli Theater by night, waiting for the day he and his fiancée of seven years, Peachy Di Pino, will marry. Carla Borelli, daughter of the founder, is determined to revive the floundering theater, a local institution that specializes in Shakespeare productions, despite low ticket sales and a crumbling building.
