Unit Set/Multiple Settings

The play deals with the post-college careers (and dilemmas) of two former classmates, a short, slightly plump would-be writer named Janie Blumberg, and her tall, thin gorgeous WASP friend, Harriet Cornwall. Both are struggling to escape from lingering parental domination and to establish their own lives and identities. In Janie's case this leads to an inconclusive involvement with a young Jewish doctor who calls her "Monkey"; while Harriet assails the world of big business and has an affair with her hard-driving (and married) boss. Told in a fast-moving series of inventive, alternately hilarious and touchingly revealing scenes, the play explores their parallel stories with uncommon wit and wisdom—resulting, ultimately, in a heightened awareness which, while not providing all the answers, goes a long way toward achieving the maturity and self-assuredness that both protagonists so desperately desire.
A brightly witty, trenchantly observant contemporary comedy which enjoyed the unique distinction of two critically-hailed Off-Broadway productions—the second a long-run, record-setting presentation which was the most successful in the history of New York's renowned Playwright's Horizons. "ISN'T IT ROMANTIC is romantic—also bright, funny, sentimental, and throughout, inching toward wisdom." —Time Magazine. "…one of the funniest and most satisfying shows in town…If Dorothy Parker were a playwright today, she might have written this endearingly acid comedy." —Variety. "…among the funniest and most inventive writers around…" —The New Yorker. "…a nouvelle cuisine comedy." —NY Times.
