Silver Linings


Ted Tally

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 1 Female

Ranging over a wide variety of topics and situations there is no story line as such but, instead, a clever mosaic of telling observations and brightly funny events, all dealing with matters of particular moment to today's young people

In one sketch a visiting Soviet comedian, through a long-suffering interpreter, amuses himself but not his audience with stale jokes and turgid punch lines long out of date in America; in another two men and a woman, who find themselves in bed together, decide to get acquainted; while in still another a couple meeting at a party engage in a long conversation which runs backward - ending with their introduction

In these, as in the other sketches, the keynote is freshness and wit, blending into a lighthearted, highly theatrical and fast-paced program which will bring pleasure to both sides of the footlights

Ten delightfully zany and irreverent short sketches created by one of our theatre's most accomplished writers. Originally presented by the Yale Cabaret Theatre, and then produced by The American Place Theatre in New York City, the sketches range widely in subject and style, but combine into a continually hilarious and brilliantly imaginative program
