"Writing plays is the way I connect with the world and follow ideas to their inevitable conclusion. Every play I write is a way to find out something about who or what I am and about the world I see around me—to find out if words can really ever 'get at what they are trying to say'."

Jeanne's new play, "Love in the Time of Corona" , performed by Theater Three in Long Island

Haley has started to write again and decides that for various reasons it’s time to take a break from her marriage of twenty years. She seeks out an old friend and considers the possibility of a new life in Maine. Back in Vermont, her husband Charlie has no idea why she has left. His friend Gabe lends a sympathetic ear, at least up until the point where he can’t anymore. Gabe reveals that he has had a one-night fling with Haley and drags Charlie to Maine to work things out. The result is not what they have hoped for.
