SITUATION ROOM, 1992

Soho Rep, NYC

Worlds collide when a couple of market researchers target a group of actors to investigate leisure behavior.

Harry
well, youíre probably wondering how to think of me

Mary
I donít mind saying whatís going on isnít completely clear in my mind yet

Terry
I explained it

Mary
I know

Harry
itís simple, yet subtle

Mary
sometimes you canít tell if itís the situation or the words somebody is putting it into

Harry
Iím sure we can make it work

we intend to begin marketing reality-based product endorsements starring you two as the people you actually are

and to know how other people will see you, we need to know how you are ourselves

but the last thing we want to do is intrude

just think of it as opening a window on your life and inviting us in

see, we really want to know what would be happening if we werenít here

for us, the experience is entirely yours

“Neu finds his greatest source of humor playing with the characters’ second-hand sense of reality.” -- Theater Week

“. . . inanity carried to the highest power, consummate zaniness. The whole hilarious troupe works as a conglomerate Buster Keaton.” -- Village Voice
