Lambs In Winter

If you liked ‘The Graduate” and ‘The Big Chill,’ then you'll love ‘Lambs In Winter.’ This play is about two lifelong friends as they share experiences from their college days, protesting against the Vietnam War, to the woman they both love and finally into the frustrations of retirement in a receding economy. The post war baby boomers were confident that they were going to change the world, just like every other generation. This dramatic comedy takes the reader on a voyage through the successes and failures of Tony, Richard and Katherine, while stopping off to examine the social issues of the day from a variety of perspectives.
Life is full of promise when we’re young. We are the lambs that go through the seasons of life, from that early sunny spring until we have to face the icy winds of winter. That winter for Tony, his wife Katherine, and best friend Richard arrives just as the world is going through the greatest financial crisis since the 1920’s. Failed markets and troubled relationships greet retirement for the everyday heros of this play. “I mean, I thought I had this pile of investments worth all this money and now it’s mostly gone. I thought I had a wife, till death do us part, and now I find she has been screwing some guy, for God knows how many years…and then coming home and crawling into bed with me...and pretending that she is the loving wifey,” is how winter arrives for Tony. ‘Lambs In Winter’ will make you laugh, even as you see yourself reflected in the lives of one, or the other, of the characters. Lambs In Winter is a full length play, in three acts, and involving only five principle actors.
