Interior Set

The author of Loose Ends and Moonchildren dramatizes the desperate attempts of a 16 year-old boy to reconcile his divorced parents, a somber chronicle about disillusionment of people whose hopes and dreams are tainted by the prism of time. The events of the 1950's are explored through the eyes of Martin's parents, radicals who have chosen very different ways to cope with the changed and changing times.

Andrew has dropped back into the system and accepted the conventionality of day-to-day existence. Caught between these irreconcilables, Martin is unable to bring his parents back together but must find and follow his own life path.
