Three Jewish middle-aged sisters, originally from Brooklyn, come together in Queen Anne's Gate, London, to celebrate the fifty-fourth birthday of Sara, the eldest, now a brilliant British banker. Divorced, a single mother, Sara no longer sees the necessity for romance. Gorgeous, suburban housewife and mother, is also a talk-show personality. And Pfeni, journalist and travel writer, still hasn't written her serious book on the women of Tajikistan. Pfeni's boyfriend, Geoffrey, director of the hit musical The Scarlet Pimpernel, brings to Sara's house Mervyn, a faux furrier, "the world leader in synthetic animal protective covering." Sara meets Merv and finds that even at fifty-four there are possibilities. An exuberant, heart-warming, contemporary comedy by one of America's best playwrights.

In this volume, some of the 20th-century's greatest playwrights talk about their craft. In doing so, they prove that reports of the death of the theatre have been greatly exaggerated. From the experiences that inspire their work - Harold Pinter on growing up in the East End, Arthur Miller on McCarthyism - to their experiences of their work - Edward Albee on ignoring and attacking the critics, Tom Stoppard on fame and money - these discussions assert a profound belief in the power and necessity of theatre. Other interviewees include Thornton Wilder, Lillian Hellman, Tennessee Williams, Eugene Ionesco, Samuel Beckett, Athol Fugard, Neil Simon, John Guare, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Wendy Wasserstein and August Wilson.
