  • Fefu and Her Friend
  • Nov 15-21 | 7:30PM & 2:00PM

Fefu lets her friends in on a cat-and-mouse game that she plays with her unseen husband. Pretty soon, Emma makes a glamorous entrance; the repressed Sue and Paula enter tentatively; and Julia is rolled in on a wheelchair that she may or may not need. Confused yet?
