Whatever Happened to Mrs Kong?


Fred Carmichael

Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Male 4 Female

"Kong keeps them laughing" and "Carmichael scores again" were newspaper headlines following the summer theatre opening

Adam and his mute servant, Felix, are on a decaying movie set on a tropical island following an accident that gave Adam two things: amnesia and a suitcase full of money

Three women arrive pretending they know him, one as grandfather, one as husband, and a sexy Russian defector says he is father to her love child. When the U. S. President arrives, it is clear they are all after a nuclear device being exploded the next day

The bomb is parachuted down and hangs over their heads, having gotten caught in a hole in the ceiling. The unexpected denouement caps an evening where we take a comic look at ourselves as we wait for the ultimate explosion

"Full of surprises, humor, deft remarks about politics, follies, and morals" ~ Manchester Journal, Vt
