Character List:

Picture this: New York City. Second Avenue on the Upper East Side. A man, down on his luck. Mel Edison, a middle-aged man, just lost his job during a recession, in the middle of a heat wave in Manhattan. To top it all off, there is a garbage strike! Between the noisy neighbors, the hot summer, no job, garbage strike, and living in Manhattan with all the noise, it is no wonder Mel suffers a nervous breakdown. It is up to his wife, Edna, and his brother and sisters try to bring him back to reality.
