HOPSCOTCH. A young man and a young woman meet, apparently by chance, in a park playground overlooking Lake Quannapowitt. Their conversation, at first, is casual and impersonal�like strangers meeting for the first time. But gradually subtle hints emerge, suggesting that the two have indeed known each other before and, perhaps, better than either cares to remember. In the end the shattering truth of their past relationship is revealed�they are former lovers, now enemies, and both bearing the scars and bitterness of a shared loss that has done irrevocable damage to them both. (1 man, 1 woman.) THE 75TH. The scene is a private dining room in a restaurant overlooking Lake Quannapowitt, the occasion the seventy-fifth reunion of a high-school class�of which only two members remain. Now in their nineties, the two, Arthur "Cookie" Silverstein and Amy Chamberlain, don't remember each other at first, but, as they review their memories and recall old friendships, the past begins to clarify and emerge. Touching, funny and revealing, the play captures the sweep of long life, and the sense of how significant, in our later years, are the decisions and actions at which we arrive so casually in our youth. (1 man, 1 woman.)"
