§ Dramatis Personae Man (m), middle-aged, a little arrogant; Youngster (m), tribal urban, very provocative.
§ Synopsis “The Man and Youngster are looking at movie bilboards in front a movie theater and exchanging ideas. Man loves classic movies; Youngster loves only movies with sex and violence. To the youngster any movie without sex or violence is ‘Walt Disney as far as I am concerned.’ The Man grows very angry and gives the Youngster a bit of violence—and then a bit of sex. . . .
§ Comment “The actors must dress in character. If one can display actual movie billboards, the effect will be better. This play could be staged anywhere (normal stage, classroom, halls, restaurants, etc.) I have more of these short plays!!!”
Themes cinema, generation gap, sex, violence, Walt
