§ Dramatis Personae Rick (m), 25, a young Southern man who loves jazz; Kenya (f), 25, a young Northern woman.
§ Synopsis “Kenya, who’s from the North, and Rick, who’s from the South, have just moved to Atlanta after college and grad school up north. It’s a beautiful summer evening and they are having a picnic while listening to a free jazz concert. Rick loves jazz, loves Atlanta, loves the South; Kenya thinks she should if Rick does. But she doesn’t, she realizes; in fact, the whole idea of jazz bores and annoys her. And that goes for the whole damn state of Georgia and the Old South, too! What’s Rick going to do about it? Huh?
§ Comment “1 scene; elements of a picnic are needed—sandwiches and the like; jazz music.” • Joe Lauinger’s Curriculum Vitae: B.A. University of Pennsylvania (summa cum laude), M.A. Oxford University, M.A. Princeton University, Ph.D. Princeton University.
