SATURDAY NIGHT follows a Sicilian-American family from 1950 to 1980. Concetta, the aging widowed matriarch of the family, adores Carmello, her son, and finds fault with Neddie, her gay daughter. Bernardo, a second son and failed boxer, is an embarrassment to Concetta. As the matriarch ages, she re-positions herself in her children’s lives. When circumstances require her to live temporarily with Carmello, she disrupts his suburban Long Island comfort, creating a fissure between him and his wife. Distance is no obstacle for Concetta’s reach. By hinting at reconciliation, she also unravels the life of her daughter and partner who live together in San Francisco, a relationship Concetta has aggressively criticized. Both Carmello and Neddie have coupled with powerful out-of-tribe women. Carmello’s wife, Justine, challenges her husband’s mindless privilege; Neddie’s partner, Linda, challenges the neurotic long-distance attachment Neddie has to Concetta. By the last page, only Concetta is unchanged by her machinations.
