Experimental Theatre: A Three Second Play

Scene: A man and a woman stand facing each other. It is a balmy night, unseasonably warm for the time of year. The woman is approaching menstruation and is stricken with regret. The man has Irritable Bowel Syndrome and a receding hairline.

WOMAN: I am consumed with feelings of shame and anger and I need you to register these emotions.

MAN: My stomach hurts and I am concerned that I am losing my hair prematurely. Suicide is a relief to me somehow.
