Rain is in love with her best friend, Ash. It's possible Ash feels the same way. Except that now Ash is falling for Rich to the delight of her mother, Maggie. Over the course of an evening, all three women will experience the bittersweet consequences of desire. This verbally taut comedy brings to life that little-known adage: If at first you don't succeed... seduce your best friend's mother.

Published Reviews

"The cracklingly funny dialogue summons up the feel of a raunchy gossip session that includes an uncomfortable, almost violent game of one-upmanship."

Jason Zinoman, The New York Times

"...a smart, elegantly simple three-character play for strong women actors that moves like lightning -- any theatre that wouldn't touch it is missing out."

Loren Noveck, NYTheatre.com

"This is a witty, bitterly mocking play. Playwright Winter Miller has written a tight, carefully structured script."

Jenny Sandman, CurtainUp

"The dialogue that Winter Miller sets down on the stage for her characters is very conversational, which makes her characters as believable and tangible as anyone I know off-stage."

Timothy John Papp, OffOffOnline
