Additional Info

Kate Driscoll and Jim Conroy are quite a team in this comic drama by the author of The Octette Bridge Club and Getting the Gold. Jumping back and forth in time, the play introduces these two as teenage dance partners and as adults who meet again in the 1980s.

Kate is stuck in a comfortable but dull marriage. When they rekindle their friendship, Kate learns that the romantic ideal of her adolescence is homosexual. Can she accept it?
