It is autumn at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the famous "Wall of Names." The wall serves as a catalyst for Harriet and Sara who, struggling over the loss of their older brother, are forced to confront the walls within themselves, and that which has stood between them over the years.
Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 16th Series.
Autumn Leaves was first produced in the Jameson Theatre of the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, in April 1991. It was directed by Gregory Elder.
