Unfinished Stories

Sybille  Pearson

Over forty-eight hours in an Upper West Side apartment in Manhattan, four people attempt to bridge the gaps in their lives, heal old wounds and connect across seemingly unbridgeable cultural, conjugal and generational gulfs. The play revolves around Walter, a formidable, deeply principled German-Jewish doctor who fled Germany as Hitler came to power and who now clings to his past; Walter's son Yves, a middle-aged working actor, desperately trying to gain his father's acceptance and love; Yves' son Daniel, swimming in confusion yet wholly devoted to his grandfather; and finally, Gaby, Yves' ex-wife and Daniel's mother, an outsider to the adversity between the fathers and sons, the bitterness of which threatens to consume her. Each member of the family circles one another trying to come to terms, yet they seem to move farther apart. The play culminates with Walter's death, which seems may finally tear Yves, Gaby and Daniel completely apart; yet, at first helpless without him, the fractured family stays together.
