There are eight wonderful roles for women in this sentimental comedy about American life in a bygone era. On alternate Friday evenings, eight sisters meet to play bridge and gossip. The first act takes place in 1934; the second ten years later during a Halloween bridge party where each acts out her costume's persona. The emotionally distraught youngest, who does a hilarious Salome belly dance, has just gotten out of a sanitarium and knows that she must cut the bonds to her smothering family and strike out on her own. This is a charming play for community theaters with actresses clamoring for good roles.
"One of the most charming plays to come to the stage this season...A delightful, funny, moving glimpse of the sort of lives we are all familiar with our own." - New York Daily News
Produced at the Actors Theatre of Louisville Humana Festival of New American Plays and in New York
