As Fair As You Were
As Fair As You Were
as Fair as You Were tells the story of Maggie and Walt's late-life marriage over a weekend at her family's lakeside cottage in northern Vermont. The story is about family - not the idea of family as a permanent institution, but the reality of family - that we lose people, and new people come in. The weekend fires up Maggie's two daughters' long standing feud which then forces the family to confront their former lives and move on. a poignant, often funny play, as Fair as You Were suggests that sometimes letting go and loving can be the same thing.
