From Off-Broadway, Winner! 1986-1987 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize

Winner! 1986-1987 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
Loved by audiences and critics nationwide, this compassionate and reflective play about two women coping with loneliness and loss was also successfully presented Off Broadway. The women are the last members of a rural commune founded in the 60's. One's husband was killed in Vietnam and she still clings to his memory. The other's wisecracking husband is hospitalized and dying. Both women find the courage to accept their "narrow bed" and get on with their lives.
