Kate Driscoll and Jim Conroy are quite a team in this comic drama by the author of The Octette Bridge Club and Getting the Gold. Jumping back and forth in time, the play introduces these two as teenage dance partners and as adults who meet again in the 1980s. Jim, divorced father of two children, has been eking out a living as an actor and is about to embark on a new enterprise as a partner in a restaurant. Kate is stuck in a comfortable but dull marriage. When they rekindle their friendship, Kate learns that the romantic ideal of her adolescence is homosexual. Can she accept it?
"Mr. Barry has written an extraordinarily honest play in that he hides nothing: everyone's secrets are exposed. What gives [the play] its steady rhythm are the kindness and acceptance that permeate the characters." - New York Times
"Charming and evocative." - Newsday
