SYNOPSIS: Mature content. When Tony visits his wife in an institution, she'll only agree to see him if she can bring three ladies from her group therapy. Eerily, these four women, all abused wives, have bonded together as one. Not only do they finish one another's sentences, but the other three almost seem as if they were married to Tony as well. Shocked to discover his wife's newfound strength, he begins to realize the four of them can see deep into his soul. Powerful and eerie, this play allows great range for the actors.

"Excellent if need a small cast show that packs a powerful punch for such a short piece. Could also be used as a modern spin on the Greek chorus. From my student director: A great interpretation of modern society's gender change with men expressing emotion and women taking a stand for themselves."
