Abstract:

"The author having served on a New York City Fifth Ave. co-op apartment board for several years in the eighties and nineties, observed a board member casually commenting that a prospective buyer clearly bought his clothes off the rack. The author commented, "I get my clothes off the rack." When the board member said "I know," the idea of this play was born. Some parts of the play were actually witnessed and more comes from research from brokers and real estate attorneys in New York City. All of the board positions are real. While the play is set in a New York City Fifth Avenue co-op board, it reflects the same biases that can be found in private organizations all over America. This play had a completely sold out run in New York, in addition to a sold out run in San Francisco where there are very few co-op apartments."--Publisher's website.
