Sunday Tea with Desiree

Book By: Billy St. John
Play #: 8053
Pages: 31 pgs
Cast: 2 m, 6 w

On a sunny summer afternoon on the lawn of a country estate, Desiree and her guests gather for tea. Though the conversation is witty and sophisticated, one senses that underneath all the frivolity, something is wrong -- but what? What subjects has the new maid been instructed to avoid? What is implied in the guests' covert glances to one another? Why does Desiree's daughter, who is away at boarding school, write for permission to visit a friend over the holidays rather than come home? It's not until the last few minutes of the play that the audience learns the truth behind the charade, a revelation that will haunt them long after the final curtain. The piece is suitable for community theatres and advanced school groups.
