In this structurally innovative comic drama, which takes place simultaneous over the course of a single tennis match, and over the course of two years, Kate and Leslie explore the complexities of their boyfriends' competitive spirits. Russ has a temper. Brian has been known to cheat. As their weekly tennis sets play out aggressively on stage, Kate and Leslie dissect their friendship and rivalry in a volley of sharp observation and wry wit. An explosive comedy about love, relationships, and the consequences of a lousy backhand.
