Description

Full Length Play

Drama

The hit of the 1989 Yale Repertory Winterfest, this deeply moving drama was produced Off Broadway at the WPA Theatre. The story is about friendship and about dying. It centers on the relationship between Ellis, a film maker whose career is just beginning to take off when she learns she has terminal cancer, and her best friend Lynne. Lynne puts her own life and career on hold to care for Ellis, as she struggles valiantly to accept the inevitable reality of her death and to die with dignity. Fans of Ms. Commire's other fine plays Shay and Put Them All Together know what to expect from an author who isn't afraid to write out and out drama.
"Painfully moving...Worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Marsha Norman's, Night Mother and Edward Albee's All Over. It deals fearlessly with the subject of living with, and dying of, cancer. It's a deeply rewarding experience. There's a staunch bravery about the play that is exhilarating rather than depressing." - Variety

"Forcefully shows how a terminal illness can be almost as devastating to a devoted caretaker as to the stricken person. [Its] strongest element is its sense of documentary fidelity [as] it captures the terrible uncertainties and roller coaster ups and downs of fighting the disease." - The New York Times

"Laced with humor...Well structured...Most important, Commire's compelling dialogue and situations ring absolutely true." - New York Daily News
