Four men in metropolitan New York, friends since childhood, suffer marital difficulties as adults. As they and their wives struggle with responsibility, blame, and the search for truth, their friendships survive and deepen. A full cast performs the story in turns, as told by Wil, Kyle, Allen, Jay, and their wives and girlfriends. Each performer brings credibility and compassion to his or her character, and a notable professionalism that extends even to the men relaying the speech of each other. When the men puff up with self-righteous indignation, the performers bristle audibly. When the characters cry, you can almost hear the tears at the microphone. While the women have only one chapter each to work with, their performances bring a polishing touch to the chronicle. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
