In this humorous political thriller, two presidential candidates battle for their party's nomination. William Russell is a wit and scholar with high liberal principles, beloved of the eggheads and suspect for practical politicians. Joseph Cantwell is ruthless and hard-driving, a fighter who will not let scruples trump his ambition. Ex-President Hockstader's endorsement is critical, but who will he support. Each candidate has information to destroy the other; one is sure to use it, while the other must decide whether to compromise. The candidates' wives also have important roles to play as the decision comes down to the last minutes of a hotly contested national convention.

Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge, claiming he knows their son at college. Paul tells them he is the son of actor Sidney Poitier, and that he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul's intelligence and his fascinating conversation (and the possibility of appearing in a new Sidney Poitier movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. But in the morning they discover him in bed with a young male hustler from the streets, and the picture begins to change...

This is the twilight years'love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year.

Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiance, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
