A popular actor has spend his life shirking responsibility. When he discovers he is terminally ill with leukemia, he attempts to reconnect with his long-estranged son. Scottie Templeton’s a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, he’s everyone’s friend, nobody’s hero and a great womanizer who’s managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage, and fatherhood. Life has been one continuous gag. But a fifty-one, he finds the script’s been rewritten as a tragedy; he is fatally ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie’s one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor. Tribute is a warm, funny, touching play with wonderful characters.
