By Jennifer Rogers.

Cast: 5w. In this incisive and witty play concerning three generations of women in the same family, life seems like a jigsaw puzzle. The puzzle is often incomplete; it's great when all the pieces fit and infuriating when they don't. As the play opens, a Christmas visit has been taking place, and the reunion is not exactly fulfilling the spirit of the season! As Alex recites slowly and calmly, "All women are my sisters, flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood, sacred, singular, unique... It's all so simple until I walk back through my own front door," we experience with these women the revelations of their past and present, their changing attitudes and circumstances, their independence from "what's expected," their coming to terms with one another, and ultimately their deepening appreciation and love for one another as adult mothers, daughters and sisters. This play, dealing with sensitive issues for mature audiences, is a fresh, bold and rewarding look at life. As the playwright put it, "I want to show these women as they really are: funny, bright, interesting, brave human beings who bring immense strength and compassion into each other's lives." One int. set.
