Additional Info

Here is a play about commitment and responsibility in love. Jack, an aspiring actor, is serious about his career but not about his girlfriend, Martha, an aspiring dancer. They drift along on a cloud of good times, until Martha gets pregnant. By the time Jack realizes he wants to make an emotional commitment to Martha and their child, she has had the baby and put it up for adoption. Martha becomes a self-sufficient contemporary woman; it is Jack who will hurt forever from the pain of eternal separation from his child.
