December Fools is written by Sherman Yellen and directed by Donald Brenner. Gloria Temple, the beautiful widow of a renowned musical composer, has devoted her life to protecting her husband's name as a Broadway legend. In need of an heir apparent, she swallows her pride and summons her estranged daughter, Marcie, who fled to New Mexico years ago. As the rift between mother and daughter deepens, Marcie stumbles upon a hidden cache of her mother's un-mailed letters. Filled with dark secrets about her parents, her siblings and herself, can Marcie resist payback? "Pepper[ed] with delicious comic scenes... December Fools could be a play with a long, happy life." -- NY Times "The final scene is tense and brilliant...
