Requiem on a Summer's Eve: An Homage to George and Martha is inspired by playwright Edward Albee's 1962 stage play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Although the 1966 film adaptation, by director Mike Nichols, has even more meaning in this work. Requiem on a Summer's Eve: An Homage to George and Martha is the story of a middle-aged couple in a broken marriage on the very edge of final collapse. Throughout the work, which is written as an "overheard conversation," Dirk and Mary Lawford face one another and their tumultuous life together with both humorous and heartbreaking results. While the events unfold, a radio plays timeless standards in the background which at sometimes mirror and at other times contrast with the words and emotions of the characters. The many issues with which the Lawfords must deal include the extreme grief that they feel over the loss of their only child, the many conflicts that they have had with their in-laws, and the general problems within their relationship with one another.As they recall their life together, they must finally come to terms with lies and secrets from their past and deal with a final acceptance of the truth about what really happened to their son Ethan.
As their story comes to a close, a surprising twist brings about the revelation of why this story had to be told.
