It is almost Christmas in the year 1857 and Dick and Agnes Burdoon find themselves in dire straits in a tenement room in New York’s notorious Lower East Side. Abandoned by their wealthy relatives and unable to find work, they must use all their imaginative resources in order to stave off imminent starvation. As they prepare to peddle the last of their meagre possessions, the unlikeliest of salvations is just around the corner. Dinner in Mulberry Street is both a love story and a celebration of fine food and drink. Heart-warming and hilarious, it is a perfect drama for the Festive Season.
