The 1970's are long gone, taking with them the fun and farce of youth. It’s the height of the 1980's and things are much more serious.

The beloved characters first introduced in Tales of the City are twelve years older than they were then, and three years older than when they appeared in Significant Others.

It is 1988 and the presidential election acts as a backdrop to the latest chapter in the lives of the friends who found each other all those years ago in the apartments on Barbary Lane.

Mary Ann Singleton is now a fiercely ambitious TV talk show host who finds herself forced to choose between national stardom in New York and a husband and child in San Francisco. Caught in the middle is their longtime friend, a gay man whose own future is even more uncertain. Sure of You shines a cold blue neon onto our formerly free spirits. Wistful and compassionate, yet subversively funny, it is a story that could only come from Armistead Maupin.
