Attractive older woman in her 50s to early 70s. She is intelligent,
Eleanor's slightly younger sister, in her 50s to 60s. She is
Eleanor, well-known romance writer, enlists
the ghost-writing talents of her sister Abigail on her latest titillating
venture. Midway through a work session Eleanor receives a call from her
editor informing her of a major change in direction at the publishing house.
The two sisters embark on a hilarious rewrite session that takes them from
the cold fog of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf to the dark underbelly of
the city’s infamous leather bars, with long-held family secrets unearthed in
the process. A great comic vehicle for two mature actresses.
SettingThe study of Eleanor’s Beverly
Hills abode. Bookcases line the walls. We see a bookcase upstage, as well as
the room containing a desk or small table, a chair and a side table. A word
processor sits atop a desk which is in the center of the stage. It is early
afternoon, the present.
