 *The Play:*
*THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA* takes place in Italy in the summer of 1953.
Margaret Johnson, the wife of a well-heeled American businessman, is
touring the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara. While sightseeing,
Clara, a beautiful yet surprisingly childish young woman, loses her hat in
a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of
Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine, who returns it to Clara. This
brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and
intense romance between Clara and Fabrizio. Margaret, extremely protective
of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart. As *THE LIGHT
IN THE PIAZZA* unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to the cultural
differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she
appears. Unable to suppress the truth about her daughter, Margaret is
forced to reconsider not only Clara's future, but her own hopes as well.
