In this critically acclaimed play, Connie Gault weaves together strands of myth, magic, and fairytale. After a vacation abroad with friends, a middle-aged woman is tempted by ancient gold beads, crones, a mysterious child, and a ruby ring. When a charming scoundrel offers to take her on a mysterious journey, she has to decide what she is willing to risk to live her life. Gault’s rich language explores the nature of desire–from its first shimmer to the dark of disillusionment–and raises questions about the true meaning of longing, and loss.
