Hugh Leonard

Published by Samuel French Ltd

4 Male 4 Female

The author of Da, A Life and The Au Pair Man has given us another warm-hearted wistful play which enchanted critics and audiences during its Off Broadway run at the Hudson Guild Theatre

Leonard has brought together three friendly middle aged couples along with the teenaged son of one and the young daughter of another for a quiet picnic lunch out in the country on a balmy midsummer afternoon in 1968 and then, in the second act, in 1974

Hence, we are shown the subtle, delicate yet strangely monumental changes time, and the times, make on this richly conceived group of friends

And, in so doing, Leonard makes us even more aware of the never ending need in all of us for friends, and for friendship

"... the evening slowly but surely enchants us and fills us with a rush of goodwill ... always with a laugh at hand" ~ N.Y. Daily News
