    Summary

    August, 1972. American ground troops pull out of Vietnam, with thousands more soldiers to follow. A communications hotline reopens between Seoul and Pyongyang for the first time since the Korean War. The Washington Post publishes the first article on what will become known as the Watergate scandal. And Florence Vassy and Freddie Trumper meet at the Marshall Chess Club in New York City.

    As long as he lives, it will never occur to Freddie to feel silly for thinking their meeting as epic and historic as the world-changing forces at work that month. Because they changed the world too, didn’t they? He and Florence.

    Vignettes across seven years of an increasingly fraught friendship, all slowly building up to the events of the play.

    Summary

    “She’d laughed aloud the first time she saw him jump like a spooked cat at a flash of lightning; not her most empathetic moment, but then, she was no saint, no matter what Freddie believed. At any rate, he’d bluffed his way out of that one-- had tried to do the same for a full month’s worth of good old London rain afterward until she’d snapped and told him to just bloody admit it, for Christ’s sake, it’s not a sin to be scared.

    She was patient by necessity, not by natural inclination. And necessity was a rather difficult thing to justify when one’s partner’s only candid moments came when he was either exhausted, drunk, or cowering at the edge of psychosis.”

    Summary

    Freddie takes his pills now.

    It’s funny, because Florence used to have to bitch at him about it every other day because he’d forget, or pretend to forget. Or he’d decide they didn’t help, or that they were poisoning him, and he’d flush them down the toilet. After that stunt she kept them with her and gave him his daily dose from the palm of her hand, like a nurse or a mother with her child.

    Now she’s gone, has been for four years, and he hasn’t missed a dose in three.

    He's not better, but he's doing better.

    Bangkok might change that.
