A Feminine Ending
by Sarah Treem
Full Length Play, Dark Comedy / 3m, 2f
A Feminine Ending is a gentle, bittersweet comedy about a girl who knows what she wants, but not quite how to get it. Her parents are getting divorced, her fiancé is almost famous, her first love reappears, and there's a lot of noise in her head, but none of it is music. Until the end.
"Ending is a promising beginning...the playwright has a sense of humor that brings to mind a budding Wendy Wasserstein and a liberated sense of form that evokes a junior Paula Vogel." - Los Angeles Times
"Darkly comic...has undeniable wit." - New York Post
"Appealingly outlandish humor." - The New York Times
"Courageous. The 90-minute piece swerves with nerve and naivete. Sarah Treem has a voice all her own." - Newsday
