A bright young girl is dying of terminal cancer. Terrie, a charming and daffy orderly, loves her out of a kind of obligation, an acceptance of her fate. Cathy's mother is running away from the situation, so afraid of her daughter's impending death that she builds a wall of fear, not letting any honest emotion through. These two masks are like the illness itself -- they are both being torn from within. It is Cathy herself, learning how to live and to die, who helps in the reconciliation of the two people she loves most. A gallant, touching, unexpectedly humorous play -- timeless, and with a universal appeal.
