THE STORY: Bobbie drops the pages from his novel into the Hudson River. They tell the story of three sisters: Sylvia, a reporter, Barbara, an agoraphobe (played by a man in drag), and Alice, a scientist with a plan to isolate and eliminate the gene for love. The three sisters are going to have to bury their father—when they get around to it. His coffin has been sitting in the living room for a year now, and he’s starting to smell. Meanwhile, Bobbie goes out each night kissing strangers, and Sylvia goes out each night looking for Bobbie. A story of unrequited love, missed connections and a novel in a bottle.
“…fabulously weird and weirdly fabulous…the reconsidered stereotypes and unexpected observations keep coming.” —The New York Times.

“…a smart, well-done play…Catch it before it’s gone…” —NYTheatre.
