|Dianne Trulock, J.C. Barrett.|
A weak pair of one-acts, the first a rapid-fire farce about a serious subject, the involvement of a well-brought up boy (Alexander Duncan) in the fatal, ganged-up beating with a baseball bat of a local sissy. The relationship between the boy and his lawyer is explored for laughs.
The second play concerns a dull phone repairman (J.C. Barrett) who hates his job and complains of it “to a whining, smitten red-haired woman [Dianne Trulock],” according to Howard Thompson. He wrote, “The sum total: no enchanted evening.”
Without laughs these plays quickly floundered and were withdrawn within a week.
