Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
Mother and son are having a scene. Suddenly a voice shouts, "Cut!" and the director runs down the aisle onto the stage. It is only a film. For twenty one years they have been filming this boy's life. Everybody he's lived with-- his mother, his girlfriend, even the news vendor on the corner-- is acting. The director induces him to sign a contract. The last scene will be his death. "This is a tragedy," the director explains. His girlfriend deserts him and then does a turnabout telling him to flee. But then another turnabout occurs. Which is the real girlfriend? Which is the real world? Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 17th Series.
