Two Plays: My Italy Story & Long Gone Daddy

Playwright: Joseph Gallo

My Italy Story: Spurred by visits from his grandmother’s ghost and by pleas from his cousin Louie to help get the family back together, Thomas DaGato quits his job as a New York account executive and travels to the tiny Italian village of his ancestors – Vallata. It’s not until he comes home, however, that he discovers a secret that unlocks his past.


Long Gone Daddy chronicles the comic misadventures of becoming a stay-at-home father. From Bruce Springsteen concerts to OBGYN appointments to the Hoboken playgrounds and back again, Gallo’s semi-autobiographical play also wrestles with the memory of his own Dad, a former fireman, and the existential question, “When does a father earn the right to be called Dad?”
