Isabel is a modern young woman who lives alone and works in a book shop.
When she is not pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother (Bubbe) in Manhattan's Lower East Side.
This irascible granny and her friend the matchmaker have found a "good catch" for Isabel, whose initial reluctance gives way to a blossoming romance when she finally meets Sam, the pickle vendor as the end of the play offers a new beginning.
"An amusing romance that tells its unpretentious story believably, rarely trying to make its gag lines, of which there are many, upstage its narration or outshine its heart." - The New York Times
