Full Length Play


Human spontaneous combustion is not something that most people worry about, but Amalia Parker does, and that's why she won't sleep with Rob.  Sex with someone she doesn't care about might not be so dangerous, but with the man she truly loves?  Spontaneous combustion is a definite possibility.  This is the kind of logic that only makes sense in the Parker household, where mom cooks obsessively, dad has turned the house into an interior 18 hole golf course, and ancient maiden Aunt Emily does laundry and practices the family art of selective sight.   When Rob manages to talk Amalia into ignoring her fears, the worst happens. Amalia's sister Mary Catherine arrives for the funeral, and Amalia and Rob have a terrible choice to make.  A sweet, quirky comedy.
