"Illuminating, sensitively wrought play...achieves the very considerable feat of making us feel the tragic implications of a serious theme by letting it serve as the basis for a free wheeling comedy." - Louisville Courier Journal

Additional Info

Clarissa and Flo live in an Idaho nursing home. Clarissa is practically bed ridden and Flo, the "new girl," is in a wheelchair. She enters Clarissa's room to get acquainted and a marvelous relationship quickly develops. In a surprise twist, it turns out that these old ladies take turns being "the new girl" - and it's Flo's turn! This affecting and wonderfully humorous play about growing old was a hit at the Great American Play Festival at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
