Synopsis of the Show :

The play consists of monologues by women who have learned to cope with change, loss, lack of love and aging in their own unique, unconventional ways. Some face reality squarely and find ways of compensating, while others retreat into fantasy or ritual. Beneath their odd and sometime bizarre behaviors, we catch glimpses of ordinary people whose needs and emotions are not very different from our own, who share in our common humanity.
