Interior Set

Set in the turbulent 1970s, this bittersweet romance by the author of Moonchildren and Spoils of War, starred Kevin Kline at Circle in the Square on Broadway. Paul is a Peace Corps dropout, and Susan is in freefall when they meet on a beach in Bali. Later, in Boston, they live together and then marry. Separating briefly, then reconciling in a New York penthouse, she has become a successful photographer; he a successful film editor. Paul wants children and Susan does not. Recriminations follow as Paul bitterly denounces her for having had an abortion six months earlier without his knowledge or consent as her birthday celebration turns to shambles. One final, brief reunion is attempted, but the couple comes to terms with the failure of their once romantic notions.
