Interior Set

Having squandered her inheritance, Avis now operates a guest house on Cape Cod, thanks to the financial backing of her wealthy, but disapproving, brother. Her niece, unmarried and thoroughly unpleasant, joins her to await the birth of her child—only to be startled by the arrival of the baby's father, Peter Ott, who has at last summoned the courage to offer marriage. A failed priest, and drifter, and the disenchanted heir to a sizable fortune, Peter soon realizes that while his obligation is to the niece, and her stuffy parents, it is with the tart-tongued, world-weary Avis that his deeper sympathies lie. And it is in the resolution of this dilemma, with its bittersweet truths about the human heart, that the play and its people take on an emotional validity of rare forcefulness and shattering honesty.
Described by the author as "a play about adult hide and seek," this perceptive and touching comedy-drama, produced Off-Broadway, marked the debut of an arresting and significant writing talent. "…these are real people in a situation of real emotional consequence…" —NY Post. "…scene after scene held the attention…" —The New Yorker.
