§ Synopsis “Nancy and Iris, good friends, are meeting for a casual dinner. Iris has just returned from a spiritual retreat; Nancy, from a salon. Friendly female bonding turns to violent female bondage, as an old jealousy over a man they both slept with rekindles, bringing them to blows.

§ Comment “A comedy about women’s friendship and how some things never change, no matter what deep breathing exercises one does. • One scene, one set: needs only one table and two chairs. • Premiered by New Georges Theater Company, New York City, http://www.newgeorges.org, November, 2002.

§ Themes competition, dinner, jealousy, female bonding, friendship, identity, spirituality.
