One of America's most provocative dramatists conquers new territory with this droll comedy of errors set in a Victorian drawing room. Anna and Claire are two bantering, scheming "women of fashion" who live together on the fringes of society.nbsp;nbsp;Anna has just become the mistress of a wealthy man, from whom she has received an enormous emerald.nbsp;nbsp;Claire, meanwhile, is infatuated with a young girl and wants to enlist the jealous Anna's help for an assignation.nbsp;nbsp;As the two women exchange barbs and taunt their hapless maid, Claire's inamorata arrives and sets off a crisis that puts both the valuable emerald and the women's future at risk.nbsp;nbsp;Mamet brings his trademark tart dialogue and impeccable plotting, spiced with Wildean wit, to this wickedly funny comedy.
