Or "The Day It Rained Clients"
A One-act Farce "Suited" for H.S. Festival Competition
by Gordon C. Bennett
4F/4M or 5F/3M
Approximate Playing Time: 35 Min.

Besieged by a barrage of clients, Attorney Elizabeth Walker must determine whose suit is worth pursing and whose needs sent to the cleaners. There is Mrs. Goodlady who intends to sue Coach Hoffa for cutting her daughter, Tracy, from the basketball team due to her diminutive height; Coach Hoffa suing his father for failing in his parental obligations; John Wellesby, his father, suing dancer Hope Swope for exposing his bald head in front of his T.V. viewing audience; Hope against stock boy Barney Wescott for improperly stacking food cans resulting, she claims, in a broken ankle; and Barney against Goodlady, claiming a case of “displaced aggression” for reducing his chuckle to a snicker at her voice-over studio all because he is smitten with Tracy. To everyone’s dismay, throughout the steady rain of clients, Walker’s nephew takes notes for a school project. But are any of these suits befitting a proper client? $10 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $40 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre. Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
