Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
In this hilarious British comedy, longtime couple Janet and Harry quarrel over everything from toast to the meaning of love. As Janet gets Harry ready in the morning, she wonders if there's anything more to married life that the day-in-day-out challenges. When the gasman stops by for a routine meter reading, Janet's pushed over the edge and starts to question her own existence. A hilarious comedy that offers rich monologues for both the characters Janet and the Gasman, as well as a dark look at the role of the housewife.  Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 6th Series.
