Interior Set

The scene is a comfortable apartment on lower Fifth Avenue, in New York City, which is shared by two divorcees. They are awaiting the arrival of a third "bachelor lady" to join them in dividing their living expenses. Their new roommate turns out to be a recent divorcee from Texas, formerly married to a rich oil man, and a bit unsettled by another divorcee who lives across the hall—a Ph.D. who also happens to be not quite white in skin color. But the four soon hit it off well, and their confidences to each other reveal the sometimes sad, sometimes funny occurrences which have brought them to the present situation. Tension mounts with the unexpected visit of the son of one divorcee and the ex-husband of another, but ultimately the action of the play comes to bear on the central problem which confronts them all: the need to learn from past mistakes, and to replace the loneliness and frustration of their present existence with something stronger and more solid than what they had before.
Deftly blending humor, revealing insights and dramatic tension, this Off-Broadway success examines the plight of four divorcees picking up the pieces of their lives in New York City.
