A Brief Period of Time a play; by Don Rifkin
The place is a small southern town which Candy left ten years earlier to go to college and then seek her fortune in the wider world; while Billy, her high-school sweetheart, stayed behind and went to work in the local sporting goods store. Now Candy is back, a young widow whose much older husband has left her well off financially, and Billy has stopped by, ostensibly to offer his condolences but, actually, to make an attempt to rekindle their old romance. The problem he encounters has to do with the time Candy came home on vacation from college and caught him fondling another girl—who has long since married someone else. But old memories rankle, and when Billy tries to arrange a date for the next night Cindy is less than compliant. However, as the play ends, the suggestion is strong that the good memories are beginning to overcome the bad and that they will soon be picking up where they left off all those many years before.
