By Terrence McNally

March 27 - April 18, 1998
Directed by Rhonda Clark

The vacation of two suburban matrons in India, narrated and interpreted by the impish Hindu god Ganesha, begins as a hilarious serio-comic journey of two very politically incorrect Americans abroad and becomes a dark passage of the soul. McNally's drama brings to life both an exotic setting and an inner landscape of emotions, hopes, and lost dreams.
