Synopsis

In words of the Village Voice, this “…is a bedtime story about two girl roommates. Rachel is glamorous, fast-living, sometimes lost in her own self-dramatizations; Agnes is plain, matter-of-fact, her shyness masked by a kooky personality. The play is ostensibly about Rachel: She turned her latest boyfriend in to the police when he stole from her, and now she is remorseful—now she decides she is in love with him. Agnes tries to cheer her up with wisecracks, then tries to rekindle her self-awareness, and finally Rachael goes to sleep. Agnes is left alone, thinking about her lunch date with the boss’ disappointing son tomorrow. And suddenly it is her play, the realist is the true romantic. Agnes’ unprepossessing but real emotions outweigh Rachel’s trumped-up, self-indulgent flourishes, and suddenly the play is simple and moving.” (2 women.)
