Of All the Wide Torsos in All the Wild Glen
Of All the Wide Torsos in All the Wild Glen
By Paul Peditto.

Cast: 2m., 2w. "I speak of noble freedoms! My last crushed breath given to defend the liberty and honor of the cheeseburger!" So raves Maxwell Gibbs, the robust poet and playwright extraordinaire. The once-famous Gibbs has fallen out of favor with critics and public alike. Counseled by his psychiatrist and agent, desperate to rediscover past glories, Gibbs decides on a final, desperate course of action—liposuction! The play unfolds in the antechamber of a doctor's waiting room. There Maxwell Gibbs meets his nemesis, Susan Hastings, the essence of the modern woman, her "deranged obsession with the physical" building the time they spend confined together into a wild frenzy of matching wits, grits, philosophy, white-knuckle screaming and true moments of tenderness. A hilarious examination of compulsion toward physical fitness, and probably the world's first play about liposuction—and you. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
