Interior Set

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.

Entertaining and endearing. Great vehicle for strong women.

Generally enjoyable; not a knee slapper. It's a little slow, and I felt that it really never got anywhere.
The sisters needed greater personality separation. Pleasant, but not overly entertaining.
