The Octette Bridge Club

Directed by B. Michael Quale

A sentimental comedy aboutAmerican life in a bygone era.  On alternate Friday evenings, eight sisters meet to play bridge and gossip.  The first act takes place in 1934; the second ten years later during a Halloween Costume Bridge Party where each sister acts out her costume's personality.  A delightful, funny moving, glimpse of the sort of lives we are all familiar with- our own.
