THE STORY: Two university students, one a physiologist, the other an economist, have been sharing an apartment, but now one of them is about to depart for work abroad. They also share an enthusiasm for game-playing, and the most active communication between them is expressed through hilarious fantasy-like skits, replete with outlandish accents and parodied characterizations. The departing roommate also has a sometime mistress, a boozy older woman named Julia, whom he would like to bequeath to his friend, and it is his attempts to set this up that bring on the most wildly funny bits of play-acting—leading on, ultimately, to a suddenly serious yet subtly revealing denouement.
"…a moving and pensive, as well as very funny, play." —Cue Magazine. "…a delightful, delicate, and funny charade about the loss of innocence." —The Record.
