Calvin (m), youthful park staff member; Vincent (m), rich, handsome, businessman; Amber (f), youthful beautiful park visitor; Hannah (f), an older woman, philosophical bird feeder.
“Calvin works in a park where he picks up trash, feeds the squirrels, and enjoys sitting by the lake at night where he eats cheese sandwiches and watches the moon’s reflection. Every day, he sees the beautiful Amber come into the park. Just when he is about to speak to her, Vincent, the rich, handsome, businessman convinces her to go out with him. Hannah, an older woman who comes to the park often to feed the birds, offers simple advice to Calvin and later to Amber?”—One Act Plays and One-Acts by Brooklyn Publishers, http://www.brookpub.com/oneact.htm, accessed June 10, 2003.
