About the Play:

A Feminine Ending is a full-length dark comedy by Sarah Treem. Young composer Amanda Blue knows what she wants, but not quite how to get it. Her parents are splitting up, her fiancé is almost famous, her first love reappears … there's a lot of noise in her head, but none of it is music she wants to hear.

A Feminine Ending is a carefully composed journey from where you are, to where you'll go. Having recently graduated from a major conservatory, and with a rocker boyfriend on the brink of stardom, aspiring composer Amanda Blue's "extraordinary life" seems to be all mapped out. But when she's called home to answer her mother's distress call about a [marriage in crisis/marital crisis], Amanda's grand plan starts to unravel. A Feminine Ending is a bittersweet play from the writer of HBO's House of Cards and In Treatment about dreams deferred, loves lost and learning to trust a woman's voice in a man's world.

Feminine Ending premiered in 2007 off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in New York City and went on to regional productions at South Coast Repertory and Portland Center Stage, among others. Since then the play has been mounted by colleges and community theatres.

Cast: 2 women, 3 men

What people say:

"A Feminine Ending is a promising beginning...the playwright has a sense of humor that brings to mind a budding Wendy Wasserstein and a liberated sense of form that evokes a junior Paula Vogel." — Los Angeles Times

"Darkly comic...has undeniable wit." — New York Post

"Appealingly outlandish humor." — The New York Times

"Courageous. The 90-minute piece swerves with nerve and naivete. Sarah Treem has a voice all her own." — Newsday
