LOOSE KNIT

Genre: Comedy
By Theresa Rebeck, Directed by Douglas S. Hall

Do we really need the opposite sex to make our lives work? This is just one of the questions the five women in Theresa Rebeck's Loose Knit consider as they get together weekly to knit and decompress from their hectic New York lives. Lily is the perfect hostess and mother; Liz, a celebrity journalist who hates the liars she's forced to interview; Paula, a psychologist who wonders who she really helps; Margie, a caterer, is looking for love and all lawyer Gina wants to do is knit! Add in Bob, Lily's husband, and millionaire capitalist Miles and the group begins to unravel. Can the women pick up the all dropped stitches and knit their friendships back together again?
