Box 554, Factoryville, Pennsylvania 18419, U.S.A., telephone 570-945-7878, e-mail davidzarko@peoplepc.com, http://mypeoplepc.com/members/davidzarko/; • Cited by David Zarko, via ftp April 30, 2000; Zarko says,

§ Dramatis Personae Ken (m), 32, slight, not unattractive, but with an unusual, taught appearance; Sheldon (m), youngish,  with a brilliant smile and a stunning demeanor.

§ Synopsis “An actor discovers that he has hung himself after breaking his own heart once again over his leading lady.  His artistic director replays his last moments with him, and the dividing line between life and death grows vague.

§ Comment “One set, one scene. Technical requirements are fairly simple, except for some special light and an on-stage hanging. Lots of customary stage props.”

§ Themes acting, classical theater, death, rebirth, relationships, suicide, theater.
