Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Larry, a teacher, is anxious to break up the recent affair he started with his former student Donna. As Larry drives Donna home to her husband, the play captures the mounting discomfort that follows. Linda tries delaying tactics as they stop along the way, struggling to rekindle the passion they had shared. When finally they stop at a motel, to Larry's increasing exasperation, Linda attempts to seduce him. In the end, the demands of convention and existing commitments prevail, illuminated by Jeffrey Sweet's wisdom on the ongoing battle of the sexes.
Selected by Edward Albee for inclusion in the first one-act play festival of the Lincoln Center Theatre Company, this bittersweet examination of a romance grown cold marks a further advance in the career of one of our theatre's most imaginative and resourceful writers. "The writing is crisp and often funny." —NY Post. "…some excellent observations into the problems of contemporary relationships." —Hollywood Reporter.
