Two's a Crowd


Willard Simms

Published by Dramatists Play Service

1 Male 1 Female

Filled with a numbing sense of discontent about the purpose of his life and the tedium of his job at the travel agency, Jack tells his fiancee that they must get away from it all, find a sanctuary in the mountains, recapture the feeling of oneness with nature

Perhaps, Mary Anne suggests, he should just change jobs, try for a managerial position with a larger salary. (Which, of course, shows how little she comprehends the import of what he is trying to say)

And yet a gentle embrace, a kiss, the promise of greater delights to come - and suddenly the impracticality of it all dawns on the male mind. Why not a better job? If you're committed in the right direction, doesn't it make the waiting easier?

Whatever you say, agrees Mary Anne sweetly, as she mulls over what kind of furniture to buy with their riches to come

Gentle but slyly revealing study of the restless hopes and dreams which can foster a dangerous discontent in the hearts of young men and the feminine wiles which can so effortlessly bring things back to the way a girl wants them to be
