This fast-paced cleverly written play takes place just outside Boston in the late 1970's at The Wayside Motor Inn. The play is about ten ordinary people who find themselves faced with extraordinary decisions - a couple going through a divorce and a traveling salesman's lonely existence on the road, an older couple struggling with aging and their place in the world, a teenager and father arguing about the young man's future and a young college couple deciding on the seriousness of their relationship. These stories unfold simultaneously on stage which provides for the quick-pace and funny situations that has made Gurney such a treasured playwright over the past 50 years.

Saybrook Stage is delighted to be returning to The Kate for the ninth performance over the past four years. A.R. Gurney has a unique way to capture the special and funny moments in the everyday lives of all of us.
