Three One-Acts by David Macaray
Directed by Phil Brickey
THE FRENCH CLUB
When a married couple drops by a car lot to check out the latest models, they encounter a salesman who turns out to be part-psychologist, part-sociologist, and part-con man. Despite keeping their guard up, they soon find themselves players in a bizarre psycho-drama. It ends in seduction, betrayal and, perhaps, the purchase of a brand new, fully loaded XL-70.
NO SALESMAN WILL CALL
The action centers around a woman who takes great pride in her sales resistance, but who also happens to be an inveterate and helpless buyer of consumer junk. The play opens with a knock at her door. It’s a salesman. She hates salesmen. She hates salesmen, and she hates predatory sales techniques. But, paradoxically, she loves buying stuff. Alas, our economy would collapse without people like her.
Takes place in a public park. A college professor with “women problems” meets an almost totally uninhibited young woman. Despite being polar opposites, they manage to more or less hit it off. Meanwhile, in a nearby tree, a mother bird frantically fights to keep marauding crows from killing her babies. It’s part-allegory, part-sitcom.
