Velma and Clyde are uneasy neighbors. Velma, a widowed grandmother, has tended her vegetables in this humid North Florida community for most of her life. Clyde, a gay man out of place here, has recently moved in from New York City after losing his lover and most of his friends to AIDS. The two widows express their growing distrust of one another in a series of alternating monologues, at times tragic and hilarious, until a tacky statue of Michelangelo's David unpredictably brings them together.

Published Reviews

"Rich with Mairs' vivid dialogue ... humor and hurt, individualism and conformity, and companionship and loneliness are all delicately balanced..."

Dan Broslovsky, The Ithaca Times

"Coping and surviving are the heart of this small play, which despite its somber themes, provides much light-hearted entertainment."

Barbara Adams, The Ithaca Journal
