§ Dramatis Personae Bryan (m), husband, actor; Grace (f),wife, actor.
§ Synopsis “Bryan and Grace, a young married couple both pursuing acting careers in New York, squabble over Grace’s disparaging attitude resulting from a career slump and from her having purchased a lottery ticket with their budget strained past the limit. The winning numbers appear on television. Their lives change as they realize that they have just won five and a half million dollars. Bryan is positively gleeful, while Grace almost immediately begins to mourn that their ‘starving-artist’ days are over.”
