Dramatic Comedy

Bill and Shelley, youngish married couple, are living in a Pacific Northwest log cabin. They've already failed at farming so now, they're trying deep sea fishing along with a friend, Robbie. They don't have the money, but they're negotiating with Reilly, a dying fisherman, about buying his boat. The threesome are joined by another couple, Mary Ellen and Dane. Events, comic, poignant and futile take place. Robbie produces money for the boat and then attempts suicide. Then Reilly is killed in an auto accident and the boat deal is also dead. In the climax, Robbie breaks down admitting to living off his rich father and off his friends' dreams. Full of surprises, gripping moments and with highly articulate characters. The play portrays the "Moonchildren", nearing thirty, and their tentative attempts to come to terms with life and reality.
