§  Dramatis Personae Jim Reynolds (m), 32, car salesman wearing styled hair and a pinky ring; Dave Scott (m), 25, wears an ill-fitting sport-coat, has hair that won't stay combed.

§  Synopsis “Two car salesmen, Dave and Jim, try to figure out why Dave is not meeting his monthly sales quota.  The dwindling sales figures are directly attributable to Dave's appearance as an actor in a friend's musical satire Incredible Rump.

§  Comment “The play, based on ‘Rumplestilskin,’ has some dark moments, but, as Dave says, ‘It has a happy ending.’ One scene, no special requirements.”

§  Themes acting, AIDS, bestiality, car sales, quota, Rumplestiltskin.
