Synopsis adapted from the publisher Dramatic Publishing…
“Michele Lowe’s radiant play explores the possibilities that open up in the lives of an array of women as they come into contact with a certain strand of pearls. While the pearls are stolen, bought, bestowed, unstrung and nearly lost, eight actresses play 27 characters in this deeply moving drama that is as fresh as it is funny. On the eve of her granddaughter Amy’s wedding, Beth asks to see the pearls she gave Amy’s mother long ago. When Amy cannot produce them, Beth determines to find the pearls. She takes us back to the time when she received them and then gave them to her daughter, who passed them on to her dearest friend Ela who lost them one Sunday morning. Spanning 35 years, the pearls touch the lives of mothers and daughters, sisters and friends, even husbands and wives as they weave a deeply affecting story of love and loss.”
“String of Pearls is a funny and moving tale of a fated necklace that changes the lives of over two dozen characters. Their stories twist and turn through a myriad of emotional turmoil—love, loss, desire—as the necklace touches the lives of all who come into contact with it. The stories and characters, intricately threaded together, create a gently comic, wonderfully magical puzzle.” –TheatreChannel.com
“Highly satisfying hilarious blend of sex, satire, poignancy and absurdism.” -The New York Times
