Arrogant, self-centered movie director Guido Contini finds himself struggling to find meaning, purpose, and a script for his latest film endeavor. Ten days away from the start of principal filming of his latest movie--ambitiously titled "Italia"--he has no idea for the movie at all. Escaping all the pressure at a seaside resort, he thinks about the women who have shaped his life: Mamma, judgmental but affectionate; Luisa, cherished yet under appreciated wife; Claudia, actress/muse of the picture; Carla, his flashy, passionate mistress; longtime costumer Lilli; bubbly American journalist Stephanie, and Saraghina, the salacious, witchy temptress of his childhood memories

Arthur Kopit's plays reflect diversity: the hilarious Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad, followed by Indians, a deeply felt social satire filled with humor and featuring a pompous Buffalo Bill, who both romanticizes and exploits the Native Americans. Wings, a sensitive and beautiful work, is about an older woman who has suffered a massive stroke. End of the World turns to humor to comment on the Bomb and the preposterous

Arthur Kopit burst onto the world theatrical scene right out of Harvard in 1959 with his international hit Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad, which announced Kopit's comic and architectural brilliance with the monstrous whirlwind, Madame Rosepettle. Indians used Buffalo Bill and the formal of a Wild West show to dramatize America's capacity for amnesia and the dangers of changing historical fact into fiction: a demonstration of denial which was the decade's most profound theatrical metaphor for the tragedy of Vietnam and America's floundering sense of itself. Wings extended that inquiry to personal tragedy, a hallucinatory poetic study of a stroke patient's loss of speech
