Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service   --   (GFP)

Two one-act plays:

Riches: David and Carolyn Rose would seem to "have it all"-a generous income, two expensive cars, a son in a good college, and twenty-one years of wedded bliss. Now, on their anniversary, they have returned, with another couple, to the hotel in Red Wing, Minnesota, where they spent their honeymoon. The other couple wants the Roses to join them in the bar for a pre-dinner drink, but David, more in love than ever, has other ideas and it is his amorous persistence which moves the play quickly to its crisis point. To his shock and amazement, Carolyn not only turns aside his overtures, but calmly announces that she wants a divorce.

Nice People: Eve Wilfong, who lives over the "Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music Bar," is paid a visit by her niece Catherine Empanger, a novice nun who's been asked to leave her convent. It seems Catherine suffers from a curious compulsion to yell obscenities at the wrong moment, and even, on occasion, bark like a dog. Roy, an honest if simple fellow from the bar downstairs, wants to court Catherine whether she's a nun or not.
