§ Dramatis Personae Derek (m), 28, a hypochondriac; Rachel (f), 27, full of her own self-importance; Pauline (f), 30, caring environmentalist.
§ Synopsis “Rachel, Derek and Pauline climb a big tree condemned because of road development as a protest and to try and save it from destruction. However, Derek has only climbed the tree because he is infatuated with Rachel—who is there just for the glory and publicity. Pauline is the only one who is really interested in saving the tree—providing they can do it before the wedding she has to attend on Saturday!
§ Comment “Well, . . . it’s up to you; . . . either build a big tree or represent it using scaffolding or do it anyway you like. There are no scene changes. • For other works by the same author visit http://website.lineone.net/~w1ldrover22/.”
