The play centers on a married couple watching a movie. We are treated to the wife's interior monologue as she watches what she thought was going to be a nice romance but turns out to have too much nudity and sex for her taste. She becomes obsessed with the fact that her husband's prurient interests are aroused. She is convinced that he doesn't want her, that he wishes his wife looked like the figure up there on the screen, and that the sparkle has gone out of her marriage, and by the time the movie ends on screen, her marriage is in tatters - all unbeknownst to her husband, who sits there eating popcorn.
First produced at Studio X in Ashland, Oregon, in July 1989.
