Synopsis:  comedy

Set in a suite in Boston’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the 1940s, the play revolves around a group of New York theatre-folk watching opening night of their new play written by a truck driver. Hoping for a success and moving on to Broadway, the cast of characters includes the playwright; a temperamental leading actress and her gin-rummy playing mother; a flamboyant director; a lowbrow producer and his wise-cracking ice-skater wife;  plus the show’s backer.  Is the show a flop or isn’t it?  Is everyone together on this? Or Friends or foes?   Ambitious and complacent or superficial or lacking in depth?  Does it matter?
