Three One-acts: Crazy Eights, Baby Food, and That Other Person
THE STORIES: The three short comedies in this collection were all originally written as part of The 24 Hour Plays On Broadway. Described by The New York Post as "the equivalent of a high-wire act without a net," the 24 Hour Plays is an annual benefit in which several one acts are written, cast, directed and performed on Broadway in less than a day. As Black Book says, "It's a raucous, foot-stomping evening which redefines fresh." CRAZY EIGHTS. When Connie comes home late one night, she finds her parole officer waiting in her apartment with a torte and a long list of questions. The interrogation/courting dance that follows is complicated by the after-hours arrival of Connie's charming card-playing buddy. (2 men, 1 woman.) BABY FOOD is a contemporary comedy about an off-kilter couple desperately searching for godparents for their newborn infant. Little do they know that the friends they've chosen are less than adventurous diners and on the verge of a divorce. (2 men, 2 women.) THAT OTHER PERSON. Tonight is the night Ginge and Kevin are going to tell their respective spouses the marriage-shattering secret they've been keeping from everyone. But their bomb shell gets put on the back burner when a gorgeous peeping-tom, with secrets of her own, falls in the pool and nearly drowns. (2 men, 3 women.)
