A Basketful of One-Act Comedies
Hey, Noah, Wait for Me! is a zany satiric fantasy involving an out-of-control animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex turned loose on young Prudence's field trip by an evil secular humanist. The results are quite devastating. In the very human "Lov [sic] Story" we meet a philosophical New York cop, a foolish young man and an equally foolish young woman who meet in Times Square on a freezing day and manage, as the cop warned might happen, to blow a potential relationship by telling lies to impress each other. "Ménage à Trois" involves a lovers' triangle consisting of a smug but unwise husband, a phony lover from long ago, and a timid, self-effacing wife/lover whose brains and memory outclass both husband and former lover when the three rendezvous in New York City. "Mirror Mirror..." offers a cautionary lesson in interpersonal dynamics: we should beware of what we wish for, especially if we consider our family normal. A sweet, highly moral middle-class mother, a gentle but eBay-addicted father, and a slightly goofy teenage daughter make wishes before an altogether effective magic mirror. In "A Tuber Melanosporum Affair" France and an American backwoods county join spritual hands in the noble cause of truffle cultivation. However, love-struck Miranda, is fed up with her family and anything related to truffles, including her sweetheart's devotion to his French-inspired hot-air balloon and its tie-in to the truffle industry. A mystery develops when sabotage by pig occurs.
