About SOUP: Alan, an intellectual property rights attorney slugging it out for a corporate master, brings his 86-year-old mother home from the clinic where she was given strict orders to stay off her fractured foot. They and Fran's best friends Isabel and Ignacio all agree she will need home care. Isabel, always the mover and the shaper, calls her friend Felicity, a woman of Puerto Rican heritage, as a candidate. Fran and Felicity hit it off, but when it comes out that Felicity is homeless and is rumored to have had a history of drugs, sex, and alcohol, opinions heat up and what seemed a simple solution becomes a quandary. Fran discovers that Felicity was the original soup cook for what used to be her favorite cafe, and decides to stick by Felicity despite the furor. She contrives to leave her and Alan together on a mother's instinct that Alan's softer side will come out if he and Felicity get to know one another, and that he may find he can help her in some meaningful way. Their conversation reveals that she had been cheated out of keeping her soup recipes when the cafe was sold to a chain, and the play ends with Alan's beginning to collect information for an intellectual property suit.
