© 1995 by W. Andrews, script/rights available from playwright, c/o 7181 S. Valley Trails Drive Pleasanton, CA. 94588 USA, e-mail: lydialo@ix.netcom.com . Cited by playwright via e-mail lydialo@ix.netcom.com, August 27, 1996; Andrews says,

Synopsis "Jack, a middle-aged writer is coming to terms with the sudden loss of his activist wife, Zoe. In despair, Jack, an introvert, seeks the commiseration of Fran, his alter-ego and foil. Their banter with psychiatrist Sachs flows between prattle, pathos and the profound, sharing Jack and Zoe's zany yet touching relationship and pondering Jack's own confusion on such topics as heaven, God, reincarnation, homophobia, racism, and lox schmear.

Comment "Intentionally minimal, the set may consist of as little as a round restaurant table, three chairs, a half-height office partition, and a sofa. No set changes. No problems with costumes or music.

"This fresh, humorous, character-driven contemporary play is a tight, thought-provoking, dialogue-driven play in the genre of the movie My Dinner with Andre. By contrast, replacing pretentiousness with humor makes 'Z&S' entertaining on different levels, hence a broader appeal.

"Other Descriptors: non-formula, slice-of-life, humor, contemporary issues, low-budget.

"I would like audiences to leave with a mind entertained yet challenged.

"'"Zoe & Sancho" is brilliant.' -Script Agent

"'. . . [W]itty and intelligent, nicely layered.' -PBS Director
