The Road To Ruin
10 Minute Play, Comedy / 3m, 1f
Cliff and his wife Connie are in trouble: their car has broken down. They don't know what trouble is, though - until they try and get it fixed at Jimbo's Garage...
A couple traveling on the freeway experiences a catastrophic breakdown of their car. They are fortunate to be able to coast into the lot of a local body shop – but unfortunate because the shop is staffed by a pair of unscrupulous agents of the most dishonest sort. After a slew of wheeling and dealing, the husband inadvertently signs a contract in triplicate to work at the garage and live there until such time, possibly after years, when he can pay off the various debts Jimbo and Fred push on him.
