The questionable past of a philandering executive returns to haunt him when he least expects it as Tony-award-winning playwright Terrence McNally's tense adaptation of author John Cheever's short story comes to the Broadway stage. When a callous, white-collar power player seduced and fired his beautiful secretary, he never thought he'd be forced to face the consequences for his cold-hearted actions. This is one woman who's not willing to walk away without a fight though, and when the unstable secretary finds herself pushed to the edge of sanity by the rejection, the man in the red power tie discovers why it's always best to leave bedroom antics out of the boardroom.
