Southern sass, tears and charm engage as five bank tellers speak their hearts and brew lots of coffee in this comedy by the author of Belles. Set in the break room of a small bank in Mississippi on six consecutive weekday mornings, this warm and gentle play eavesdrops on the conversations of women who have for too long defined themselves in terms of their relationships recently ended or in the process of falling apart with the men in their lives. It's a play about broken arms and broken hearts and about finding strength and self respect through friendships with those who have been down that road before.
