By Kent R. Brown.
Cast: 3w. Unfulfilled as the faculty wife of a second-rate professor of English stuck at a small, Midwestern college, Joan Samples began accompanying her husband to academic meetings where, most unexpectedly, he became enamored with Amanda York, a seductive British academician who burst upon the scholarly landscape with such critical papers as "Forbidden Impulses and Sexual Ritual: The Symbolist Movement as Literary Terrorism." Oddly aroused by this new element in her life, Joan has been spying on her husband and Amanda for several years, as they met clandestinely at conventions and even during Joan's vacations with her husband. But enough is enough. Earlier this morning, no longer able to play the voyeur, Joan revenged herself by hitting her husband over the head with a poker. And this afternoon, at a small back-street café in Tuscany, she will confront Amanda face to face for the first time. Perhaps this mysterious ménage à trois has gone too far. One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
