Abstract
 
Description
Bob and Lily Baker get together with Sam, Bob's best friend, and Molly, Sam's wife, for a 15th wedding anniversary. What is intended as a celebration of enduring companionship begins to be undermined by a sense of misgiving and a strange sadness that seems to have befallen Lily. This is a tale of a difficult, challenging weekend, during which two marriages seem on the brink of collapse. But it is also the weekend when Bob and Lily Baker fall in love with each other again. "... there is a richness of characterization and scope here that tease, please and surprise, and with a mythic stretch that is, at its best, reminiscent of Edward Albee's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?" -Nancy Churnin, Los Angeles Times "I first encountered the work of playwright Russell Davis ... at the world premier of his FURTHER ADVENTURES OF SALLY ... I found myself hanging on every word and admiring Davis's singular communicatory skills more with each passing moment ... I was no less entranced with Lily than I was with Sally ... amusing us more than a little en route with a verbal wizardry that warms and delights. Davis at the same time painlessly imparts a deeper universal meaning having to do with personal signposts lost and regained ..." -Nels Nelson, Daily News - from Amzon
