§ Dramatis Personae Julia (f), a middleaged woman; Mailman/ Soldier/Policeman (m); Priest/Leo (m).
§ Synopsis “Julia lives alone in her one room surrounded by memories of the son she has lost to a far off war, an imperfect marriage, and Leo, the man of her dreams. Consoling herself through her musings and her imagined lover, she finds reality through the visits of three uniformed men—a mailman, soldier and policeman. Julia reveals herself to her priest, who moves invisibly through her walls, until the policeman investigating the mystery of Leo’s disappearance breaks through her wall of silence to win her heart.
§ Comments “Julia’s apartment should be nonrealistic to reinforce the farcical nature of the script. One male plays Mailman, Soldier and Policeman, and the other male plays Priest and Leo. Premiered at Porthouse Theater Company, Akron, Ohio, 1984; subsequently performed at the New Play Festival produced by the Department of Drama, College-Conservatory, University of Cincinnati, 1986.”
