Drama

The children of light and darkness battle in this brilliant play by the author of Racing Demon. Gentle Isobel happily runs a small graphics design business with her husband until her sister Marion and her father's young widow Katherine demand to be taken into the company. Katherine is a destructive drunk and Marion is a Tory M.P. with the heart of a computer. Isobel accepts capital to expand and her business becomes high tech and impersonal. She ultimately walks away from her business and her marriage in this fable about the corruption of art and heart by a soulless, self obsessed society. Produced by Joseph Papp on Broadway where the cast included Blair Brown, MaryBeth Hurt and Frances Conroy.
