Summary (From the publisher):

The setting is the present day Hamptons, that sun drenched stretch of expensive ocean frontage where the rich and privileged while away their summers. Two attractive college girls, Amy-Joy and Amy-Beth, are looking for a good time, and think they have found it in the person of Kip, a handsome preppie who is in flight from the lavish home he shares with his divorced, domineering and bitingly sophisticated mother and her narcissistic married lover. And romance does develop, if not quite in the manner anticipated, as the triangular affair of the young people is deftly counterpointed against the vapid relation-ship of the older couple. But while high comedy and sharp observation prevail, the play yields a lacerating portrait of a contemporary upper middle-class that is, sadly and humorously, bored, self-indulgent and emotionally reckless.
