A Game of Hearts
Composer:Douglas Pew
Librettist:Dara Weinberg
Synopsis
March 2001. Jean Bierbaum moves into Sunset Terrace, where her sister Sylvia and Sylvia's friend Harriet live. Dr. Vergara accidentally calls Jean "Mrs. Bierbaum." Jean sings about her fiance, who died in WWII. She has never married. Sylvia and Harriet also sing about their experiences during WWII. Another resident, Jerry Rosenberg, whose wife is dying, enters and sings a song about his longing to see Poland again. His wife's illness prevents him from traveling. Jerry sympathizes with Jean's situation--he too is in love with someone who is unreachable. They sing a duet together. Jean begins to develop an interest in Jerry.
