In 1947, a group of well-meaning, if misguided, members of New York City’s Bohemian set decided to start a movement. Some disapproved of all modern inventions, like bikinis and cars, while others wanted a return to nature that left room for refrigeration and indoor plumbing. Everyone agreed that the group was divided into Purists and Realists, even if no one knew exactly what the division was about. Adapted from Mary McCarthy’s 1949 novella, The Oasis. With a special appearance by Ms. McCarthy and her arch nemesis, Lillian Hellman.
