FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

A play about surviving one's mistakes and the knowledge of death. The friends are designers of 'twentieth-century interiors', owners of a small chain of shops that market their ideas. The only other characters are an upper-class girl who has attached herself to their energy - and old Macey - the manager of the biggest store. During the play, all are asembled in Esther's room, who's dying of leukemia. From a sense of disequilibrium the characters progress to a painful readjustment to living. First, however, they have to come to terms with the burden of their own experience, their aging - and the reality of death which has already claimed Esther. The attempt to deal with this is their absorbing concern in this bitter-sweet play.
