New York City
A fascinating evening, with unexpected romance, partings,
recriminations, reconciliations, laughter, and, above all, new-found love and acceptance. Sara Goode, a successful American woman working as the British representative of a Hong Kong bank, is about to celebrate her 54th birthday and she isn’t exactly happy about it. Her quiet, almost cold,
expatriate life is about to be disturbed by a visit from her sisters, Gorgeous Teitelbaum (host of the “Dr. Gorgeous” radio talk show) and Pfeni Rosensweig (third-world travel writer). The affair is further complicated by the arrival of Marvyn, who is instantly smitten with
Sara, and who is also a friend of Geoffrey, the bi-sexual lover of Pfeni. Next to arrive is Nicholas, the stuffy Brit whom Sara has been “seeing” although he seems rather anti-Semetic. The Sisters Rosensweig is Wendy Wasserstein’s captivating look at three uncommon women and their quest for love and fulfillment. The laughter is continuous!
