Abstract
 
Description
A hit in New York on on tour with Shelley Winters, Shirley Knight and Farley Granger, this is an evocative drama of American idealism and the tragic fallout from the euphoria of the 1960s. Five lost souls are gathered in a bar, Valentins Day, 1974: Wanda, a secretary now schoolteacher, keeping John Kennedys memory alive despite the inevitable slurs; Sparger, an actor grown bitter and cynical as New Yorks vital underground theatre movement becomes a commericial wasteland; Rona, an political activist who sees the movement collapsing from self-indulgence and apathy; Mark, a VietNam veteran, now a confused, dissipated drug addict and Carla, an maniacal actress channeling Marilyn Monroe. Through distinctive, compelling monologues, the author delimits both the birth and end of the era and its dreams. (Samuel French) - from Amzon
