Interior Set

The moment her theatre critic husband returns from writing his opening night review Marcia knows that something is terribly wrong. And her fears are confirmed when, on the late news, it is announced that the theatre is dead—and her husband (thanks to his often caustic notices) has been accused of its murder. A lawyer friend comes over to help in setting up a defense (despite interrupting phone calls from the likes of Walter Cronkite), but the panicky critic feels that all is lost, and even flight cannot save him. But, even as the opposing forces gather and a national crisis appears to be in the offing, a series of very funny revelations yields some very solid truths: about where the guilt really lies; about what the best course of action is; and about the theatre itself—the inextinguishable phoenix which always rises, and will continue to rise, from its own ashes.
A prize-winning short comedy, which offers an antic and imaginative look at a most disturbing possibility the death of the theatre. Selected for inclusion in "Best Short Plays."
