The author of Da, A Life, and The Au Pair Man has given us another warm hearted wistful play which enchanted critics and audiences during its Off Broadway run at the Hudson Guild Theatre. Leonard has brought together three friendly middle aged couples along with the teenaged son of one and the young daughter of another for a quiet picnic lunch out in the country on a balmy midsummer afternoon in 1968 and then again in 1974. Hence, we are shown the subtle, delicate, yet strangely monumental, changes that time makes on this richly conceived group of friends. And, in so doing, Leonard makes us even more aware of the never-ending need in all of us for friends,and friendship.
