Synopsis "Russell and Russell are two temperamentally
ill-matched college students who may or may not share the same
name. As they bicker and struggle to get along, it becomes clear
that the one thing they do share is acute xenophobia; they cling
to one another ever tighter as the inscrutable efforts of others
to intrude on their seclusion drive them together. Soon neither
leaves the room at all, and they are left with nothing to talk
about but body functions and, finally, language itself."
Comment Premiered February-March, 1996, by the
Attic Theatre Ensemble as part of their One-Act Marathon, Hollywood,
Themes compulsion, roommate, seclusion, xenophobia.
