By Neil Simon

September 10 - October 2, 1999
Directed by Rhonda Clark

Set outside a New York family's vacation home in the Pocono Mountains, this memory play is evoked by Clemma Diggins, their housekeeper. Having died in 1996, Clemma haunts the scene of the family's last days of summer together in the 1950s as workaholic Burt Hines is recovering from a recent heart attack, but is not recovering from his divorce to the now remarried Annie. Soon Simon's trademark jokes start to fly when the weekend is filled by a medley of characters with swift tongues and mismatched intentions.

Clockwise from left: Shane Dodson, Emily Etherton,
Vincent J. Kniffin, Rob Delihant, and Jo Perryman.
