A wild comedy with serious undertones. It involves Harold and Lucille, a bored, middle aged couple; Florence, a spinster and neighbor; and Buckley, a confused policeman. Harold shoots himself and Lucille's upset over the scandal. Florence complains to Buckley about the noise. All four are in Harold and Lucille's living room when Harold suddenly jumps up (the suicide was faked) and threatens to blow up the building with a bomb (also a fake). From then on confusion and chaos reign. Thoroughly confused Florence and Buckley finally leave and Harold and Lucille resume their bored lives.
Metropolitan Theatre Guild in 1972. Directed by David Rodlich.

CASTING NOTES

Although these characters do some pretty ridiculous things, they are characters and not caricatures. They should not be played as superficial "types." It is crucial that these characters should be approached as three-dimensional human beings.

HAROLD - a short, balding, middle-aged man

LUCILLE - a slightly overweight, middle-aged woman who is somewhat taller than her husband Harold

FLORENCE - a middle-aged spinster who is prone to gossip and addicted to television

OFFICER BUCKLEY - a rather slow-witted policeman
