Osborn's classic follows the intertwined lives of 4 "middle-aged" sisters and three husbands, one nephew and his perpetual fiancée. These family members know far too much about each other -- or maybe don't know as much as they think. And who gets the long-desired prize, a house to themselves? Read more about the story and cast featuring of Gaslight regulars and newcomers and then pick your performance.

And where is spring? In the title, from Robert Browning, "Pippa Passes:"

    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hillside's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in His heaven—
    All's right with the world!
