A collection of three short plays. MORNING (Horovitz), opens as an African American family discovers a pill that can turn them white while discovering that color like beauty, is only skin deep. NOON (McNally) brings together Kerry and Asher, two men of very different sexual proclivities who are joined in their rendevous by a housewife-stripper and a couple of sadists, bringing this outrageous event to a farcical climax. NIGHT (Melfi) is set during an evening memorial service as wife, mistress, boyfriend recall "a cocky little bastard", each in their fashion. The Broadway premiere featured Charlotte Rae and Robert Klein.
REVIEWS"Vigorous, lusty ... by turns thoughtful and dazzling, witty, provocative and, in the final play, even poetic."
