Comedy / Characters: 1 male, 1 female / Set Requirements: 1 Interior
In roles originated by Uta Hagen and David Hyde Pierce, this two-character comedy opens as a aging but still formidable woman hires an acerbic dance instructor to give her lessons in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Antagonism between a gay man and the widow of a Southern Baptist minister gives way to profound compatibility as they swing dance, tango, foxtrot and cha-cha while sharing more than dance steps. During the sixth and final lesson, she reveals a closely guarded secret-she is terminally ill-and he shares his greatest gifts-loyalty and compassion. As Michael takes Lily in his arms on the final meeting, they both transcend fear and mortality while the sun sets on their last dance.
