  §  Dramatis Personae Gentleman (m), 35-75, a shabby fellow in Panama hat and white ducks; Lady (f), 35-75, a careworn pigeon aficionada.

  §  Synopsis “A pre- or post-1939 interlude with a couple of outcasts who may be total strangers or perhaps husband and wife exploring their occasionally-intersecting realities in a twilight world of their own.

  §  Comment “Lovely audience reaction to this play. Excellent roles for imaginative actors. Simple park bench setting. Excellent companion piece to author’s ‘Icy Waters.’  •  As I am fluent in Spanish, play can be translated into Spanish by author.”

  §  Themes interpersonal relationship, shared memory, reality.
