Coming About is a play that looks at the dramatic change in the institution of marriage since the 1950's. Kay, in her early thirties, is married to a man over twice her age. Finally confronting the facts about the age discrepancies, she begins to move toward establishing her own life. The play opens at the wedding reception for a neighbor, and the presence of Kay's husband's grown children, the question of inheritance, and her mother's bitter reminders about her own marriage turn the festive weekend into a pressure cooker of gender roles. The wedding gives way to a hurricane, and the five couples in the play undergo a sea change before the night is over, as the women come to terms with their loss of identity in marriage. This was the first full-length play by Gage, and it marks her own "coming about." Six women, three men. Two hours Single set
