The story revolves around three longtime friends who find their relationship on shaky ground when one of them buys an expensive white on white painting.

The painting soon becomes a metaphor as the friends stumble into the ravines that have developed unnoticed, or unacknowledged, between the varied paths that their lives have taken.

Lines are eventually drawn and the friends must decide how, or whether, to surrender old territory to find new common ground.

The play is the winner of the Molière Award for Best Author, the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

The Wilton Playshop is located at 15 Lovers Lane in Wilton.
