A One Act Comedy

Approximate Playing Time: 35 Minutes

Bobbi McGee thinks she’s Janis Joplin, that Jerry Lee Lewis manages her apartment building and that Alvin Pulaski across the hall is Elvis Presley. Some call her “eccentric” and others maybe even a little off her rocker, but everyone agrees that Bobbi McGee is a nice lady. Bobbi just made a killin’ at the 99 cent store where she bought gifts for all of her other famous friends in the building including the Stone brothers Mick and Keith, ol’ blue eyes on the second floor and Brian Wilson in 21. When Alvin Pulaski becomes the fifth tenant in a year to move out of apartment 19 right across the hall from Bobbi, Cassie, the cleaning lady, warns Jerry that he has to have a “heart-to-heart” with Bobbi or management’s going to can him. The problem is that she is just… so nice. But there could be another solution—and it might come in the form of a man dubbed “Buddy Holly” who shows up in his wheelchair to take Janis on a date. $10 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $40 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
