1984-1985

ROMANTIC COMEDY by Bernard Slade

Arrogant, self centered and sharp tongued Jason Carmichael, successful co author of Broadway romantic comedies, is facing two momentous events: he is about to marry a society belle and his collaborator is retiring. Enter Phoebe Craddock, mousy Vermont schoolteacher and budding playwright. Presto! Jason acquires a talented and adoring collaborator. Fame and success are theirs for ten years and then Jason's world falls apart. His wife divorces him to go into politics and Phoebe, her love for Jason unrequited, marries a breezy journalist and moves to Paris. Jason goes into professional, financial and physical decline. Reenter a now chic and successful in her own right Phoebe and guess the ending!
