Additional Info

Peter comes into the bedroom at his bon voyage party to get his wife's coat from the pile on the bed, only to discover his mistress wearing it. She wants him to stay with her, but he's packing up his kids and wife and moving across country for his new promotion. She asks him for one last request before she'll relinquish the coat, not for sex, but simply for him to lie on top of her. He does so for a brief, sad moment, then takes the coat and leaves, as she continues to lie on the pile of coats in despair. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 29th Series.
