This somewhat dark comedy is about a very wealthy elderly woman who is overly fond of cats and all the characters that come into her life, most of whom, in one way or another, are after her money. Not an unusual scenario, unfortunately, but Mr. Goldman has crafted some wonderfully funny characters which make this story unique, and promises the audiences an entertaining experience in the theatre.

He attended Union College in Schenectady, NY and URI in Kingston, RI,and for a couple of years edited a poetry quarterly, A Letter Among Friends, in CT.
