Description

THE STORIES: TIRA TELLS EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT HERSELF. At the outset Tira awaits the arrival of her lover, Edward, who, she admits, bores her. When he goes off to retrieve the present he forgot to bring her, she is visited, in turn, by four other and quite dissimilar possible lovers - all played by the single male actor in the play. There is Poof, the lisping faggot; Lucio, the uncertain Latin gigolo; Brute, the belching lout; and, finally, the sensitive, withdrawn Tib. In their encounters Tira acquires qualities complementary to each, but all ultimately disappoint, and Tira, having found that all there is to know about herself is nothing, turns to suicide as the inevitable alternative. (1 man, 1 woman.) THE BODYBUILDERS. While Keith plods on with his novel, his wife, Kate, methodically denigrates his output with her bitchy comments. But Keith is fully her match in nastiness, much to the consternation of the two bare-chested young musclemen, Powie and Flash, who suddenly pop in to introduce themselves and are caught in the crossfire. But the confrontation of their purely physical and oddly innocent presence with the jaded, cerebral psyches of the two antagonists produces an unexpected detente - which will last, no doubt, only so long as it takes to devise another lacerating, masochistic routine to succeed it. (3 men, 1 woman.)
