THE STORIES: In the first play, Passport, deals with a lonely middle-aged newspaperman, a little the worse for drink and sadly convinced of his ineffectiveness and failure as a person. Out of his monologue spoken perhaps with the aching desire that someone will miraculously hear, and care, comes a remarkable portrait of a man alone—wanting to feel alive again but reconciled to an existence without real meaning or purpose. (1 man.)

In This trio are sharply etched studies of big city life and loneliness. The three plays, skillfully compounded of humor, poignance and revealing insights, fit together into a marvelously cohesive evening, but may also be produced individually.
