Synopsis
This comedy focuses on the four elderly Gibb sisters involved in some humorous situations that arise from living in close proximity to one another. Two of the sisters, Ida and Cora, have lived next to one another most of their lives, and each of the four sisters know intimately the lives of the others. To Ida's house comes Myrtle, a spinster friend who's been about to marry Ida's son Homer for many years. But Homer can't break away from home long enough to pop the question. Myrtle, now at an age where she feels she'll have to take things into her own hands, finally makes him propose by telling him a secret. This charming portrait of smalltown America fifty-plus years ago was revived on Broadway in 1980 and in 2002 to critical acclaim.

It came back in total triumph. . . . Absolutely entrancing. . . . See this lovely play. - N.Y. Post.

An absolute charmer. . . . Four sisters, Chekhov would have smiled. So will you, and laugh out loud at times too. - N.Y. Daily News.

Wonderful. . . . Still has charm to burn. - N.Y. Times.
