The Portuguese Kid is a romantic comedy about impossible people banging heads in Providence, Rhode Island. A Greek American woman named Atalanta, who has made a fortune in real estate, is chasing/persecuting a local two bit attorney named Barry Dragonetti. Both Atalanta and Barry have younger lovers, and a checkered past. The play crashes into real issues about men and women on its way to a satisfying resolution/train wreck.
