"A man and woman meet at a bar and it's love at first sip," according to press notes. "Days of Wine and Roses is a love story that examines a torrid relationship that was solidified and ultimately destroyed by alcohol."

He died of pneumonia at age 81.

Director Wood serves as the associate artistic director for The Boomerang Theatre. Her directing credits include Amphitryon by Craig Lucas and the New York premiere of Aubergine Days.  She has directed for both the Montreal and Toronto Fringe Festival, as well as for the Manhattan Theatre Source's Estrogenius Festival.
