Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
Jill has just found out she is pregnant by her boring boyfriend Jack. Mary advises her to marry the twit, but she is not so sure. When Jill tells Mary she is not going to have an abortion, Jack realizes what is upsetting Jill and, in his awkward, nerdy way, he proposes. Jill turns him down, denies she is pregnant, and tells him to get lost. Heartbroken and embarrassed, Jack leaves Jill with no one to talk to but her unborn child.
