  §  Dramatis Personae Scott (m), 23, a computer programmer; Alisa (f), 19, a prostitute.

  §  Synopsis “Scott has testicular cancer. Tonight is his last night to have sex before doctors remove his testicles. Alisa is a prostitute, stranger to Scott. Tonight they are together, and what unfolds is a frightening conversation about men, women, sex, love and the illusions that souls create.

  §  Comment “At the Eden Motel, sleazy, dark, gloomy with contrasting neon. Characters remove articles of clothing throughout the conversation in metaphoric harmony, as they reveal themselves emotionally.”

  §  Themes first encounter, illusion, male-female relationship, last chance, motel, orchidectomy, prostitution, sex, love, testicular cancer.
