The award winning author of 6 Rms Riv Vu, The Fan and Kate & Allie delves into the nature of laughter and pain in this, his most telling play. There is a once in a lifetime bravura role in Sally, the mother of a mentally handicapped boy who uses her wickedly funny tongue to hold at bay a world that has the legal right, and intention, of taking him from her. The play moves gracefully from the present to the past and back again, from a crumbling marriage with her true love to a final chance at happiness with a doting suitor. This laugh out loud, cry out loud play is the basis for a CBS motion picture.
"Tackles a difficult subject purely, honestly, with much humor and enough pain to bring much of the audience to tears." Variety.
