Set in New York, the play follows the course of an intense and tempestuous affair between a brooding Nebraska lawyer who has relocated to the Big Apple to escape his marriage, and an eccentric dancer he meets at a party. Their relationship comes into jeopardy as their lingering ties to previous partners and the differences in their backgrounds and temperaments come to the fore.
