10 Minute Play, Dark Comedy

3f

ISBN: 9780573632211

A sofa in a darkened room. In this very funny ten minute play, Minnie sits in a darkened room, her face illuminated by the eerie glow of snow on an unseen downstage television set, surrounded by junk assembled by her philandering artist husband, creating in her head a bizarre imaginary film. Minnie's sisters, Sherry and Caitlin, attempting to understand the reasons for Minnie's apparent nervous breakdown, are pulled into her demented old imaginary movie, and discover what finally pushed her over the edge.

A sofa in a darkened room. In this very funny ten minute play, Minnie sits in a darkened room, her face illuminated by the eerie glow of snow on an unseen downstage television set, surrounded by junk assembled by her philandering artist husband, creating in her head a bizarre imaginary film, a combination of many old black and white movies with Humphrey Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and believes that she herself is the film's heroine, Ida Lupino. Minnie's sisters, Sherry and Caitlin, attempting to understand the reasons for Minnie's apparent nervous breakdown, are pulled into her demented old imaginary movie, and discover what finally pushed her over the edge. A densely packed and funny ten minutes or so of nostalgic movie lunacy and betrayal. Includes dramaturgical note. In Banana Man & Other Plays.
