This 1939 comedy tells the story of four aging sisters who live in a small mid-western town, and their long-standing sibling rivalries. Three of them — Ida, Cora and Arry — have lived next door to each other for fifty years, and Esther, the eldest, lives only a few blocks away. We quickly learn that living so close to one another has taken its toll. Some start to question their lives and decide to make some changes before it’s too late. In 1980, MORNING’S AT SEVEN was nominated for the Tony award for Best Revival of a Play.
