Kidney Stones: Four One Act Comedies

Front Cover
Samuel French, Inc., 2004 - One-act plays, American - 59 pages
Crashing the Gate: Two young terrorists are stuck in a motel room, just killing time and getting on each other's nerves while they wait for orders. She is a fiercely committed revolutionary; he is self-involved and just interested in the perks. A phone call suddenly raises the stakes to a lethal degree. This is a sharp and scary comedy. **Harvest Time: Mike is gravely ill and on dialysis. His survival depends on his brother donating a kidney for a transplant, but now Billy has found another buyer for his organ and must decide whether blood is thicker than financial security. While the brothers battle, Mike's wife may have a solution they can both live with. ** Itch: A well-traveled hooker and a needy husband meet in a motel room. He has a maddening itch - in the middle of his back - and is willing to pay handsomely for relief. But is she that type of girl? ** Smoke-Out: Two women stand outside a Manhattan office building grabbing a quick cigarette. One is a gabby middle-aged suburbanite who is proud to be a big boss's secretary. The other is a young, ultra-hip Goth, so laid-back she's practically comatose. The unlikely companions chat about urban development, music, oral sex and other conundrums of modern life in a delightfully quirky comedy.
