The Breach deals with the relationship between two women; one Jewish (Sharon), the other Catholic (Cathy) whose friendship is tested by a careless remark. The play takes us from kindergarten, through middle school, high school, and college during which time they maintain a close, personal friendship. However, as adults, when Cathy remarks that a particular store owner “tried to Jew me” their relationship suffers severe strain. Still, they agree to meet annually for lunch where they review events of the past year. One year, however, Cathy doesn’t arrive as she had passed away unbeknownst to Sharon. At her grave, Sharon feels deep remorse as she comes to realize what a great friend Cathy had been.
