COMEDY. This contemporary romantic comedy exposes life in the
topsy-turvy world of art. Celebrity artist Susann determines to
reclaim her lost love, Blaise, now married to a sedate New Orleans
socialite. Convinced that without him she cannot live, Susann arranges
an exhibition of her works in his new house on Exposition Blvd.
Susann's readiness to sacrifice her career, his new wife, and her
Mama's boy manager leave Blaise both angry and aroused. Theatrical
excitement abounds in this comedy of love vs. duty in which passions
are discovered. One init set.

TIME The present. Sunshine, already hard on the windows, fills the
room with a sharp light.
SCENE A mansion on Exposition Boulevard, New Orleans. We are in a big,
finely-proportioned parlor with high ceilings, Orientals, a crystal
chandelier. The atmosphere is that of a grand sanctuary, where the
landowner can view Audubon Park as a superior. Floor-to-ceiling
windows (sometimes used as entrances) open onto a gallery overlooking
a wide lawn, which tumbles into Audubon Park. During the daytime one
has the feeling of a semi-tropical park, and at night of an oak
garden, which climbs into the stars.
