Serenading Louie

Lanford  Wilson

Two young suburban couples, friends of long standing, are suddenly aware of strains and pressures that have inexorably come into their lives. Adultery is one of these--a fact for one of the wives, an imminent possibility for one of the husbands--but ambitions, frustrated and potential, and a crying out for more meaningful personal involvement within their marriages are others. As they come together to examine their plight and to probe the genesis of their unhappiness the play moves deftly in and out of the frame of reality--with the characters talking sometimes to each other and sometimes directly to the audience. Ultimately, out of the fascinating mosaic of conversations, confessions, and reminiscences, a sense of deeper understanding begins to emerge, and, with it, the liberating knowledge of the loneliness which must exist within marriage and of the crucial commitment which individuals must make if they are truly and effectively to share their lives with others.
