A Feminine Ending
by Sarah Treem
This brilliant dramady mixes tight wit and demanding heart and modern ideas about women and their place in society. Having recently graduated from a major conservatory, and with a rocker boyfriend on the brink of stardom, aspiring composer Amanda Blue’s “extraordinary life” seems to be all mapped out. But when she’s called home to answer her mother’s distress call about a [marriage in crisis/marital crisis], Amanda’s grand plan starts to unravel. A Feminine Ending is a bittersweet play about dreams deferred, loves lost, and learning to trust a woman’s voice in a man’s world.
"Ending is a promising beginning...the playwright has a sense of humor that brings to mind a budding Wendy Wasserstein and a liberated sense of form that evokes a junior Paula Vogel." - Los Angeles Times
"Darkly comic...has undeniable wit." - New York Post
"Appealingly outlandish humor." - The New York Times
"Courageous. The 90-minute piece swerves with nerve and naivete. Sarah Treem has a voice all her own." - Newsday
