© 1975, 1977; script/rights available from Jerry DiCairano, 200 Thrasher Way, Salisbury, Maryland 21804, U.S.A., telephone 410-896-2644, www.jerry_dicairano@hotmail.com. Cited by Jerry DiCairano via ftp, December 9, 1997; DiCairano says, 

Dramatis Personae Agnes Grapney (f), a former toy designer; Donald Brown (m), a full-scale doll; Joyce Quigley (f), Agnes’ ex-boss.

Synopsis “Agnes Grapney, a former toy designer who feels she was treated unfairly on the job, creates a full-scale male doll (Donald Brown) to murder her ex-boss, Joyce Quigley. Donald’s kind nature and limited intelligence jeopardize his murderous mission when he finally meets the attractive flirtatious Joyce.

Comment “Will evil or romance prevail? Donald and Joyce’s comedic struggles conclude with a surprising plot twist. Area staging with simple, representative sets. Fast-paced dialog, charming characters, and wonderful slapstick . . . !

Themes “romantic comedy, science fiction, slapstick.”
