About Staged Reading: Variations on a Theme

Variations of the power of love. Each begins with a meeting of two people at a challenging time of their life. From the affluent to the indigent, they meet in restaurants, back alleys and funeral parlors. And as in life, each couple has their own story to tell. Two middle-aged people connect despite technology. Two intergenerational women connect to transit a rite of passage. A marriage strains its weathered connections. A homeless couple are connected by the stars and a love of literature.
