Overview

As little girls, nestled in the tiny projection booth of their family-owned cinema, Hazel and Muriel flew to exotic islands with their mother, lofted by the plane-like whir of the projectors. In her teens, Muriel found her first kiss there, underscored by the stirring music of a Hollywood romance. Now, in middle-age, Muriel returns to the fading movie palace where her estranged sister screens old films for a dwindling audience, and a new phenomenon called a video store has forebodingly appeared across the street. When Hazel, bitterly separated from her husband, insists she wants nothing to do with her sister, Muriel confesses she's been hearing voices�little girls' voices, late at night�and begs Hazel to help her resurrect the cinema and her own failing marriage. A poignant, powerful play about the limits of love and the limitless magic of the movies.
