Comedy. By Anne V. McGravie.
Cast: 2w. Alice and Margo, attractive 40-year-olds, are lifelong friends. Married to uncaring, philandering men, the women spend a getaway weekend each year finding solace in each other. This year seems like any other year, except that it's not—by a long shot. Alice, the long-suffering wife of a man who, apart from his acquiring a mistress, came by his Artist-of-the-Year Award nefariously, has a dreadful secret to disclose to Margo. Margo is herself married to a man who not only has a penchant for womanizing but also claims the Salesman-of-the-Year Award that rightfully belongs to Margo. At first, Alice's disclosure is too much for Margo to accept. When she comes to grips with it, she rolls up her metaphorical sleeves and sets about finding a solution that will exonerate Alice. It's a hard sell as Alice becomes convinced that she must serve as an example to womanhood by accepting her punishment. Is this the last getaway weekend they will ever spend together? What price will Alice pay for her dreadful deed? Or, since this is a comedy, will something completely different happen? Unit set. Approximate running time: 40 minutes.
