Editor reviews

L.A. Theatre Works again scores solidly with this stellar audio production of a wonderful play by Lillian Hellman. This audio boasts famed actress Julie Harris, who leads a diverse cast that includes Gates McFadden, Glenne Headley, Mary Steenburgen, Eric Stoltz, and David Selby. The play is set at a Southern boardinghouse, where old friends gather to rediscover personal connections and rekindle lost relationships - only to find that they can't escape the choices of their past. The characterizations and accents are first-rate, with each actor using vocal energy and great dynamics to portray a complex character. The play, which moves along at a swift but comfortable pace, is an audio production well worth enjoying.

Summary

A Chekhovian comedy from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lillian Hellman about the sad and funny frailties of human existence. As the summer of 1949 draws to a close, a group of middle-aged friends are gathering for their annual retreat at a genteel Southern resort. An acquaintance from the past thrusts himself into the yearly gathering, forcing them to re-examine their mundane yet seemingly idyllic existence, the opportunities they’ve lost, and the lives that have passed them by.
