This follows five people as their lives intertwine and separate ...
Steven, an artist, meets the writer Alice at a fashionable New York party hosted by Paula, a legendary literary agent
Paula's young assistant, Dana, introduces herself to Alice and Steven, and the courses of the next fifteen years of their lives are set in motion
The play marks those moments in our lives that may pass unnoticed but determine who we become, tracking the successes and failures of career, marriage, parenthood and friendship
" ... it may remind you of two British imports Closer and Amy's View, but there is nothing derivative about its immense wit and insight and sensitivity. Lapine may never have written anything finer than this play's final monologue about the mysterious impulses that can unite or alienate us" ~ Variety
