A richly textured drama about self discovery leavened by humor and irony, "Multiple Sarcasms" follows Gabriel Richmond (Timothy Hutton) as he takes an unconventional path to shedding his life of convention by writing a play. The play is based on himself and his relationships with the women in his life – his patient wife (Dana Delany), precocious daughter (India Ennenga), best friend and partner-in-sarcasm Cari (Mira Sorvino), and even the agent (Stockard Channing) who befriends him. As the play becomes about his life, the process proves both disruptive and healing for him as well as his close knit group of family and friends. Drawn into Gabriel's turmoil, his wife, best friend and business partner begin re-examining their own lives and relationships with him, while others like his daughter and agent provide the stability to help him pull through.
