Additional Info

In a parlor somewhere at twilight, three women await a visitor from the world of "deja vu". When Mr. Pine arrives, he brings with him mystery and innuendo. Is he the answer to their dreams, or another figment of yearning? An evening of satire in which words conjure, arouse, titillate and finally elude the demands of action. The sexual innuendo is all tongue in check. Published in Chicks and Other Short Plays.
