Sunday on the Rocks

by Theresa Rebeck

directed by Leslie Drescher

produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

On a beautiful Sunday morning in mid-October, three housemates decide to have scotch for breakfast in this play by author of Spike Heels, The Family of Mann, and Loose Knit. Elly is pregnant and considering an abortion, Jen is being harassed by a co-worker who is obsessed with her, and Gayle just feels a bit lost. Their problems are compounded by a fourth roommate, Jessica, a religious young woman who has little compassion for their confused attempts to make sense of life in the nineties. As they drink, joke, and argue, it becomes clear how difficult it is to make a moral decision in an increasingly complex world.

About The Director: Leslie Drescher has been a member of Theatre@First for seven years. Most recently she's performed in Top Girls at the Davis Square Theatre and Lysistrata at Unity Church. Before coming to Boston she performed in a staged reading of Sunday on the Rocks with the Reading Community Players in Reading, PA and she looks forward to it being her directorial debut.
