The central crisis is soapy: when Jill’s husband doesn’t join her and her married friends Mark and Shelly at the lakeside cottage they share, Jill flings herself into adultery with Glen, the equally lonely and imperfect stranger she brings back to the cottage. To complicate matters, Mark and Jill are old flames, and Mark still feels guilt over extinguishing that blaze. His rage at seeing Jill use the cabin for a tryst can’t disguise his remorse over knowing that Jill had to settle for a marriage much less happy than his blissful union with Shelly. Fortunately, savvy playwright Jeffrey Sweet handles this steamy story and the situational ethics with maturity and wisdom.
