SUX, a definitely alternative human tears strips of paper from a newspaper as DIME, a scary girl in an old man’s suit is reading “The Great Gatsby” while SUSIE contemplates getting married and baking casseroles for dinner. Is this normal? “America is a complete unmitigated mess,” says Dime. “This being the case, it is normal to feel angry and alienated. The only thing to do when you are angry and alienated is go to college and read the Great Gatsby. Ergo, we are normal.” Dime agrees a husband is an interesting idea, but what do you do with a husband? “You would be able to study him in the wild as Jane Goodall studied chimpanzees,” says Sux. A knock on the door leads to a debate on democracy with Susie finally opening the door to discover a very large Cupid with his client Bob in tow in search of a young maiden. And it appears he has found one. $10 Copyright Fee plus $15 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre. Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
