WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

David H. Vowell's comedy about beauty, age, sex, and suicide encompasses the span of a year in the lives of a young would be poet and the mature, sensuous woman who initiates him into the languages of love. This two character comedy is set in New Orleans in 1959. Emily Abercorn was an artist's model in Paris and Danial Stevens, a testosterone driven poet, fell in love with her portrait when he was a teenager. Now he's 21 and she's....older.
