Additional Info

This is an evocative drama of American idealism and the tragic fallout from the euphoria of the 1960s. Five lost souls are gathered in a bar, Valentine’s Day, 1974: Wanda, a secretary-turned-schoolteacher, keeping John Kennedy’s memory alive despite the inevitable slurs; Sparger, an actor grown bitter and cynical as New York’s vital underground theatre movement becomes a commercial wasteland; Rona, a political activist who sees the movement collapsing from self-indulgence and apathy; Mark, a Vietnam veteran, now a confused, dissipated drug addict; and Carla, a dipsomaniacal actress channeling Marilyn Monroe. Through distinctive, compelling monologues, the author limns both the birth and the end of an era and its dreams.
