Description

Full Length Play

Dramatic Comedy

An eccentric widow still young in heart dwells in, indeed overflows, her untidy Budapest apartment. Ersi's chaotic life is portrayed in episodes with the people close to her: an egocentric opera singer, her crippled sister who lives in Germany, a chic and crafty friend who successfully hides her age, her timid and loyal neighbor,the singer's formidable mother, and Ersi's daughter and son in law. Much of the play revolves around phone conversations with and letters to and from her sister, who is as calm as Ersi is nervous. When the friend steals the singer away, Ersi serenely commits suicide or does she?
