Additional Info

Two lawn chairs in a back yard in Tempe, Arizona. Set in the autumn of 1968, two coeds, Patty and Sharon, sit in their swim suits in the evening, drinking beer and talking. They've been friends since grade school, but something is wrong between them, something that happened under the pomegranate trees, and tonight it's coming to the surface. A tight, tense, funny, erotic ten minute play, and an excellent showcase for two young actresses.
