Description Grey Gardens is the compelling story of Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter, 'Little' Edie, the delightfully eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, these two women became East Hampton's most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion. Set in two eras - in 1941 when the estate was in its prime and early in 1973 when it was reduced to squalor - the musical tells the alternately glorious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable women, Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter, 'Little' Edie.
