A wealthy student/housewife must choose between her life and that of 3 other people on a train. Whom will this new age woman choose?
Aces is a wonderfully evocative comedy that is Southern to the core…it has four quirky characters each of whom is vividly painted by the playwright with striking features artfully disclosed in picturesque southern repartee that is replete with clever comic barbs… The relationship between the characters developed in the easy-flowing dialogue is beautifully evolved by Mrs O'Neill's well-devised 90 minute playClarion Herald
