Claiming that she is tired of love, an aging but still beautiful poet from the American South who now lives on the coast of France has decided to give away her young lover. But how can this be? Her goddaughter thinks she has actually fallen in love with a local fisherman while her dashing friend believes she is finally ready to accept his proposal. The young lover is equally certain she really wants to marry him. This bittersweet comedy of manners is a tribute to the grandeur of Southern style and a musing on what a smart woman might really want toward the end of her life.
"Pretty women, pretty men, pretty words...Marsha Norman's Last Dance [is] a play that suggests that if loveliness is not next to godliness, it is at least kind of divine." - The New York Times
Last Dance premiered at Manhattan Theatre Club's Stage II in June 2003 under the direction of Lynne Meadow.
