Synopsis and Musical Numbers
Once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, the deliciously eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are now East Hampton’s most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion. Facing an uncertain future, Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter, Little Edie, are forced to revisit their storied past and come to terms with it – for better, and for worse.
