The production earned solid notices for script and performances. It was to have closed May 2.
"Trying begins when Biddle, a 'Philadelphia Biddle,' hires Sarah (Kati Brazda), a direct, plain-spoken newlywed from the Canadian prairie, to be his personal secretary. Ill and irascible, the 81-year-old Biddle functions, as he says, 'somewhere between lucidity and senility,' and announces he has but one year left to live. Sarah is sensitive and vulnerable, but determined to last out that year. Together they 'try' to communicate across significant barriers of age and class."
