§ Dramatis Personae Caroline (f), 38, divorcee; Regina (f), 40, Caroline’s older sister; Marliss (f), 34, Caroline’s younger sister.
§ Synopsis “Caroline tries on Regina’s sexy evening clothes, but she cannot try on a new personality, much as she needs one, in Marliss’ opinion. Doomed to be a frump, Caroline frets that her ex-husband will bring his young, chic new wife to their class reunion. Suddenly a pair of high heels takes on new power as Marliss and Regina gird their sister Caroline for the kind of warfare only women can wage.
§ Comment “One scene, simple set—a bedroom—requires only minimal furnishings and lots of clothing strewn about. The women change clothes, but the costume changes are part of the action and occur onstage. • The play was produced at the Washington Source Theatre Company’s 1996 Festival of Ten-Minute Plays,” 1835 14th St., N.W., Washington, District of Columbia, U.S.A., telephone 202-462-1073.
