PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

John, a playwright, returns to his family's house, bringing with him a new play which he has written about them. His purpose is to obtain their permission to proceed with production, but his wealthy, very proper parents are cautious from the outset. And there is also John's sister, Nina, to contend with, although her reservations have to do with the fact that John has given her character such a minor role. Their confrontation takes place during the ritual of the cocktail hour, and while they seem shackled by the past, the ties which bind them prevail, converting pained resignation into cautious but hopeful anticipation.
