Winner of the1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and receiving its first professional production in the city limits of Philadelphia. This eloquent, enthralling and ultimately heart-breaking play explores the final hour in the life of a young woman who has decided that life is no longer worth living.
