Summer, 1957. The streets of Greenwich Village sizzle with the insistent rhythm of jazz. Accompanied by their grandmother, two teenage sisters from the country visit their married cousin in the city. Soon, the young women have embarked on their own private missions involving love, a forgotten child, and a lost mother. Set against the bustling backdrop of New York at mid-century, Franny’s Way is a sensual, provocative ode to desire, longing, and the bittersweet collision of youth and adulthood.
Franny‘s Way was originally presented by Playwright’s Horizons in March of 2002.
