A send up of silent screen westerns, this wacky comedy takes place in a room above the saloon where Clara is packing for her honeymoon. A stranger interrupts to tell her he has won her in a poker game. They fight and might fall for each other, but not before they realize they are victims of an inventive scam. An optional third character can add a silent screen era touch by flipping through title cards complimenting the action.
Published in Cross Country: Seven More One Act Plays.
Please note that there is a "Narrator" role which is optional. In the original production, the play was presented as a two-character piece, skipping the freezes and references to the Narrator. In the second New York production, the Narrator was added to give the piece more of a "silent movie" feel. If you are presenting the play with the Narrator, please be aware that the title cards called for in the script must be created for the production and they should be appropriately themed to evoke a period feel.
