SCENE OPENS just as Alice (Jane Wilde) takes the last bite of a piece of cake and polishes off her fork. Her parents Fred (Eric Masterson) and Barbara (Brandi Love) sit next to her, looking on lovingly. Around the table there are also the scraps of gift bags and wrapping paper suggesting a small birthday celebration between the family. Barbara comments that she can’t believe Alice is 18 ALREADY. Where does the time go?
