In the first play, Highway, a man suddenly decides to drive to his girlfriend's house, which is 200 miles away. He becomes obsessed with the thought that each car which passes may be his girlfriend coming to visit him - and as he begins to lose touch with time and place he becomes convinced that he has moved back to another century, another civilization (1 man)

" Highway is simply one of the cleverest contemporary one-acts I've ever seen" ~ NY Post

In the short Intermezzo, a Master of Ceremonies announces, in hilarious detail, all the exotic acts which will not be on the bill that evening (1 man)

In the final play, Hotel, a down-on-his-luck encyclopedia salesman sits in a flea-bag hotel room, eating Chinese food which is delivered by a disembodied arm, while listening to the squabbling of his neighbors and contemplating the aridity of his limbo-like existence (1 man)

Winner of the Obie Award. Produced with great success by the avant garde Westbeth Theatre Center, in New York City, where they enjoyed an extended run

Brilliantly inventive and evocative, the plays employ striking theatricality to probe into and illuminate the disjointed states of mind of two men who have been physically and spiritually divorced from reality

"Jenkin owns one of the most orginal comedic imaginations at work on the stage today. He is a writer who actually appears to know what the human comedy is" ~ NY Daily News

" the plays are character studies of two men who have distinctly different, but related, experiences of physical and spiritual dislocation" ~ The New York Post
