Part of the Oberon Modern Playwrights series
Includes A Summer's Day, Dream of Autumn and Winter These three seasonal plays are typical Fosse, imbuing apparently mundane situations with an almost hypnotic intensity.
In A Summer's Day, an old widow remembers the day, many years before, when her husband went out to sea in a terrible storm. In a series of continuous but chronologically distinct scenes, Dream of Autumn shows a man unexpectedly meeting an old friend: she will become his second wife, and cause him to fall out with his family. In Winter a fascinating but mercurial woman tries to seduce a businessman, but once he has given up his family and career, he realises may have mistaken her intentions.
