Time Period - Contemporary

Settings Of Play - A mansion on Exposition Boulevard, New Orleans. We are in a big, finely-proportioned parlor with a high ceiling, Orientals, a crystal chandelier. The atmosphere is that of a grand sanctuary,where the landowner can view Audubon Park as a superior. Floor to-ceiling windows, sometimes used as entrances, open onto a gallery overlooking a wide lawn, which tumbles onto Audubon Park. During the daytime one has the feeling of a semi-tropical park, and at night of an oak garden, which climbs into the stars.

Susann's readiness to sacrifice her career, his new wife, and her Mama's boy manager leave Blaise both angry and aroused. Theatrical excitement abounds in this comedy of love vs. duty.
