  • A Reunion of graduates of Mount Holyoak College as written by Wendy Wasserstein.

    10
    Filmic adaptation of the popular all female play about a reunion of graduates of Mount Holyoak College written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwrite Wendy Wasserstein. The play, performed by virtually every university and regional theatre in the US, received it's widest exposure with this telecast. Featuring a number of actresses about to break out into major careers in film, television and on stage, it is directed with elegance and gusto. Swoozie Kurtz gives her all as the rebellious Rita. Meryl Streep is characteristically low-key as the fragile Lila. Jill Eikenberry is strong as Kate. Alma Cuervo is moving as Holly, the outsider. Production is a bit quaint, but the writing shines.moreless
