When Devon visits Simone for an end-of-summer sibs fest on Martha’s Vineyard, she finds her little sister changed beyond recognition. As personal assistant to wealthy and demanding trophy wife Michaela Kell, Simone enjoys a lavish beachfront lifestyle that these girls never could have imagined growing up in blue-collar Buffalo—but is all this luxury really free of cost? Worlds collide and sisters square off in this keenly-observed comedy about ambition, regret and the choices that shape who we become.
The cast consists of five characters: 3F 2M
MICHAELA — married to Peter Kell & the owner of this house, 30s
SIMONE — her assistant, late 20s
DEVON — Simone's sister, eaerly to mid 30s
ETHAN — a friend of Peter & Michaela's, 30s/40s
JOS-B — the property caretaker, late 40s/50s
Setting Of Play — A ludicrous beach estate located right on a bluff in Martha’s Vineyard. In real life, this house is on the same street as the Kennedy compound in Aquinnah. This year, just after Labor Day. The island has started emptying out, but you can still smell suntan lotion (the expensive kind). This play occurs in real time with neither scene breaks nor an intermission.
