Unpublished monologue by composer, writer, and dramatist Ned Rorem. Appears to have been produced just once: June 1970 at The Extension in New York, directed by Robert Haddad. In their review, the New York Times noted that the play is "an anecdotal monologue performed by Sue Lawless [...] A lusty old harridan recounts the story of how she picked up her 17th lover this year, and how he abandoned her. She describes ó or imagines ó a scene in a pastry shop in which a waitress makes a play for her man. She responds by stabbing her. [...] The monologue is rambling and conversational, almost gossipy, which makes it entertaining..." Rare. OCLC locates just one copy, at the Lilly.
