A new play that looks at the final summer of poet Frank O' Hara and his circle of friends as they inhabit a house in the Hamptons.

Set in the summer of 1966 and inspired by real-life events, "THE LAST BOHEMIANS" paints an intimate portrait of a group of NYC-based artists and poets as they gather in the Hamptons to share a house for the summer. The free-spirited group revolves around poet Frank O' Hara (the chain-smoking, voraciously gay former curator of the Museum of Modern Art) and includes painters Larry Rivers and Jane Frielicher, poet Joe LaSueur, Rivers' mother-in-law Berdie Berger and co-founder of the Paris Review Patsy Southgate. Sex, drugs, campy humor and free love abound (along with passionate debates about art, politics and the meaning of life)...until a sudden tragedy occurs that signals not only the end of the summer, but the end of an era.
