About the playwright:
Anna Mione is the daughter of Sicilian immigrants from Corleone and Castellammare del Golfo. Although she was born in New York City, her first language was Sicilian. It wasn't until she was four years old, that she learned the American language. Educated in East Harlem public schools, Anna enjoyed playing the piano as soon as she was big enough to climb on the piano bench. She played by ear, until the age of 13, when she went to Manhattan School of Music conservatory. After high school, she became a full time student at Manhattan School, and graduated with a Bachelors Degree with a major in piano, and a Masters in Music Education. Upon graduation she taught music at P.S. 130, in Manhattan. A year later, she married Ezio Flagello, and they moved to Rome Italy where Flagello won a Fulbright Scholarship. Genoveffa Flagello, their first child was born in Rome. Three other children followed, Dante, Josine and Christine. Ezio won a contract to the Metropolitan Opera Company. Twenty five years later, the Flagellos went their separate ways, and Anna continued to teach, travel and study. In 1999, she began a prolific period of writing. She has published six novels.
