I Love You, Two
by Laura Cunningham
Full Length Play, Comedy / 5m, 3f
Two One Act Plays that can be performed separately, or together as an evening. Where She Went, What She Did and The Man at the Door.
In Where She Went, What She Did Daniel Doleman has no idea what his wife Celia does during the day while he is at work. Lately, though, she has been acting very strangely, putting hundreds of miles on the car, running up credit charges and generally acting, as far as Doleman is concerned, like a woman having an affair. Doleman becomes obsessed with thoughts of his wife's sexual infidelity-- so much so that he hires a private investigator to trail her, at a considerable cost. Turns out, Celia simply leads a very active life, and is not having an affair, according to the report turned in by the detective. By this time, though, Doleman is so far gone that he begins to suspect the investigator of duping him-- and hires another private investigator to trail the first one!
In The Man at the Door Susan and Tod Simon have been more or less continuously battling the entire 13 years of their marriage. As the play begins, they are on a 3 minute break, when in walks Gabe Mottola of Mottola Bros.-- a matrimonial repair service. He's gotten a distress call over his radio, and he's come to fix their marriage, at $55/hour, service call applied to the total, free estimates, no marital crack up too severe, intimacy guaranteed for one year. Gabe has trouble jump starting the Simon's marriage, though: so he calls in some back up help, which arrives in the form of a middle aged yenta sex pot named Muriel Ravitch, who belly dances under the name "Salome." Eventually, Salome and Gabe are able to get the Simon marital wreck humming again, before going off to the next job, and the next, and the next.
