The Lifeboat is Sinking

Jen and Sherwin sit safely on their bed, but Jen forces her husband to imagine they are on a sinking boat in the middle of a terrible storm. Waves fill the boat with water; there are no life jackets; and Sherwin must decide whether he should throw his mother overboard or condemn them all to die.

An Oblation

A friendship between two society women collapses because of their death gossip.


Victory on Mrs. Dandywine’s Island

A high-style spoof on comedy in the Oscar Wilde mode, which keeps a delightfully straight face while poking fun at the stilted behavior of its very proper characters. The scene is the sitting room of Mrs. Dandywine's elegant summer "cottage," where things take a flustered turn at the unexpected arrival of a man who, of course, must be up to no good.
