To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening of a flop play, a playwright joins his old gang to reminisce at their former haunt.
From the producers: Remember when you felt you could do anything, when there was still nothing to fear? Yes, things have changed a bit, haven't they? And everyone keeps saying there's nothing to be afraid of! Please join us to raise a toast on the 10th anniversary of the opening night of Robert's under-appreciated masterpiece, "Midnight in a Clearing with Moon and Stars." To recall that wonderful creative atmosphere, which we all miss so much, Nellie will host this celebration at our old haunt, the Talk House (which, despite everything, remains open). Please come. We need each other.
