Plot: Choreographer Anna buries her best friend and is shocked when her dead friend’s brother comes to collect her personal effects. His coarse honesty and overbearing personality are the antithesis of Anna’s artist boyfriend and everyone else in her life …. and yet the attraction is magnetic. This romance between the seemingly mismatched Anna and Pale exemplifies the strength, humor, and complexity of all of Lanford Wilson’s work.
