SUFFIELD PLAYERS PRESENTS A READING

Set in the Berkeley hills after a major fire, The Quality of Life introduces Jeannette, an earthy, high-spirited woman. Jeannette’s husband, Neil, is dying of cancer. When her cousin Dinah from Ohio comes for a visit with her husband, Bill, the two couples-one solidly on the left, the other resolute in their conservative Christian beliefs-are made to confront their huge dissimilarities.
