Interior Set

The Sponsor explores the demands and limits of friendship, the double face of success and failure, the sometimes tyranny of the weak, and the unavoidable passage of time. A prominent stage director is summoned to a nursing home by an actor friend. The actor is destitute and desperately wants his freedom; and the chance to continue a career which was at best a fancy. Deserted and refused by everyone else, his last hope lies with his visitor. This successful friend is beset with his own difficulties. Although he can think of compelling reasons for refusal he's trapped by the other's entrapment and by his own sensibilities.
