This award-winning play beautifully examines the changing American landscape. It tells the story of one woman's struggles set against the backdrop of four wars—from World War II to the present. The Nearness of You: Young Doris and her brassy friend, Arlene, meet two soldiers heading off to World War II. Set in a dance hall, romance blooms as the characters' fears and dreams for the future are revealed. How to Boil a Frog: Set in the summer of 1969, the older, wiser Doris clandestinely meets a young man at a carnival. Early Morning: Doris is accused of a shocking crime. A tense cat-and-mouse drama ensues at the police precinct between Doris and Detective Diamantini. He feels compassion for her, yet is driven to discover the truth of what actually happened. Now Comes the Night: Doris must face a life-threatening challenge. Refusing to be discarded, she comes full circle while cared for by her daughter and a young male nurse.
