The play is framed by the occasion of Josie’s 93rd birthday, on which the old woman, who has outlived her husband and daughter, begins to realize that her longevity may be her punishment…
Night Seasons is an examination of the quietly destructive effects of a life defined by bank balances. (Daughter) Laura Lee is shown as an unwilling but passive prisoner of this sensibility, who watched as her mother, father and ambitious brother sabotaged her chances for independence. Suitors were dismissed as financially undesirable and, in her 30’s, she was still living with her parents in rented hotel rooms and, later, an apartment, while pining for a home of her own.
