Comment “. . . (This play) offers brief humorous glimpses of various kinds of relationships between men and women. ‘Clark and Sheena’ and ‘A Gift Hoarse in the Mouth’ are whimsical character studies. ‘For the Bride and Groom’ and ‘A Basket of Goodies’ have a light touch of fantasy. ‘Public Enemy,’ ‘Race Meeting,’ and ‘Strange Encounter’ build upon certain clichés about relationships, but end with wry twists. The entire sequence of vignettes runs about 45 minutes.” Playwright is dramaturg for Missouri Repertory Theatre, 4949 Cherry Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64110.
Themes man-woman relationship, vignette.
