§ Synopsis “Woman wakes up next to Man and realizes she cannot recall who he is or how she met him. She spends the next fifteen minutes trying desperately to figure out his identity without letting him know she can't remember it. Man, meanwhile, is in the same situation. Finally, they are forced to admit their dilemma to each other. In the end, the audience discovers that Woman has a job interview with Man later that day.

§ Comment “This play takes place simultaneously in a master bedroom and its adjoining bath; the set should be able to accommodate this, even if it is done representationally.”

§ Themes amnesia, first encounter,, interview, one-night stand.
