The Dual
Jack Neary

Two actors appear onstage at a ten-minute play festival. They seem disoriented, lost. Uncomfortably, they explain to the audience that they have been recruited to read the scheduled ten-minute play for the audience, because the two actors booked to perform in the show have not shown up. As they gamely and bravely push forward with this last-minute assigment, they realize that the scripts handed to each of them are for two different plays. One is entitled "One Last Kiss," the other is entitled "Did You Call The Plumber." Challenged to continue despite this discrepancy, they do. Chaos ensues.
