Tennis Game, The

Tennis Game, The

Taking place in three "sets" played out on a tennis court, the play deals with the changing manners and values of the moneyed classes, and their hangers-on, from the turn of the century, through the '20s and '30s, and on to the present day. Guided by a bouncy games-mistress, we meet such luminaries as Diamond Jim Brady and Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt; the hardeyed, ambitious flapper Brenda; and Morgan Aspair, the beautiful, amoral and fascinating child of Hollywood in its heyday. The talk is bright, witty and often funny, but it is also revealing of the desperation and meanness which, all too often, lurk beneath the dazzling veneer of the places and people dealt with. In essence the play is concerned with the manners and values of the moneyed few, and those who jockey for position in their ranks, but, ultimately, it is America itself that is captured, defined and deftly illuminated by the playwright's resourceful and incisive imagination.
