Dramatis Personae Jenny (f), a young female composer; Erica (f), her older sister; Faron (m), Erica's secretary

Synopsis "In brilliant contrast to Jenny's artistic earthiness and idealism, Erica is-at first glance-a brittle sophisticate, accustomed to buying people's favors: Erica doesn't write letters, she writes checks. Facing a personal crisis that her money cannot solve, Erica seeks aid and comfort from Jenny...the only way she knows how. Faron, Erica's flamboyantly gay personal secretary, advisor, and guy Friday, weaves between the two sisters, drawing them closer to the investment they must make in each other. Infused with warmth, humor, and even a happy ending . . . of sorts.

Comment "'Payments' deposits us into the midst of the troubled relationship."
