Overview

A restaurant in Madrid. There are four playing areas: the entry area of the restaurant, center stage rear; the manager's office two steps above the entry level with an exterior entrance from the terrace and an interior entrance from inside the building, stage right; the main terrace of the restaurant six or eight steps below the entry level, stage left; a lower terrace area two steps below the main terrace level, center stage forward. Entry into the restaurant is through an arch leading from a vestibule. Patrons do not enter directly from the street. Another arch leads to the restaurant bar. Off the manager's office is a small balcony. People standing on this balcony are visible from the terrace. Vines or wrought-iron decoration make it possible to climb from the main terrace onto the balcony. At the downstage left corner of the main ter-race area is the waiter's station. Beyond it lies access to the kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

Boston Globe
The fine script by Frederic Hunter illuminates the enigmatic personal qualities of this adventurer… It is all done in crackling dialogue, so clearly defined that there is no mistaking the message each component of one man brings.
The Christian Science Monitor
… a remarkable theatrical study. Mr. Hunter has managed to imbue his 'aspects' with an unusual depth. One feels grippingly for each one as they interact, trying to overlook or ignore what truth each sees in the others.
The Hollywood Reporter
… a brilliantly inventive and totally fascinating piece of writing.
The Washington Post
… the triumph of 'The Hemingway Play' is the unexpected effectiveness of its premise. By giving the opposing sides of Hemingway's divided self an independent existence on stage, author Hunter permits us to become ringside spectators at the contest between warring factions of his own personality."
