Summary: "Years after the breakup of the musical act Barry Nichols and Les Girls, the members reunite--but not happily. It seems Sybil, now Lady Wren, has published a memoir of her Les Girls years, including an amusing anecdote of how Angele attempted suicide when Barry spurned her. Angele sues for libel, testifying that it was Sybil, a gin-guzzling lush whom she and Joy attempted to reform, who was suicidal when Barry left her. And there's still Joy's side of the story! Or perhaps only Barry can resolve this merry musical comedy take on Rashomon"
