Lapine, a three-time Tony Award winner for his musical books to Into the Woods, Falsettos and Passion, has Fran (Farrow) on her death bed reveal the many secrets in her life to her two grown daughters in a complex family drama. Although she is best known for her film roles, especially those by Woody Allen, Farrow has a stage background including her professional debut in The Importance of Being Earnest (which led to her leading role on "Peyton Place") and in the 1979 Broadway company of Romantic Comedy. Her recorded voice, uncredited, was used in Stephen Sondheim's 1996 flop, Getting Away With Murder.
