  § Dramatis Personae Cecilia (F), Abby’s roommate; Andrew (m), Cecilia’s friend; Abby (f), Cecilia’s roommate.

  § Synopsis “Cecilia and Andrew walk into Cecilia’s apartment to move her out. Cecilia’s habit of inviting people to stay with her for extended periods of time has finally backfired; her latest roommate, Abby, is clearly unstable and perhaps dangerous.  They find Abby sleeping on the couch.  Abby wakes up during this move-out process, talks with Andrew, and fights with Cecilia. Andrew and Cecilia hurriedly exit, ready to return hours later in hope of a solution . . . .
