By Nancy Pahl Gilsenan.
Cast: 2m., 8w. (extras.) Written for a predominantly female cast, this comedy centers on Lucy, a famous and funny playwright who has been rushed to a hospital because, on the opening night of her latest play, a chicken bone hidden in an enchilada has lodged in her throat. It doesn't stop her talking, which is good because she has to deal with the insanity of hospital red tape—followed by minor surgery and a major anesthetic. As the anesthetic begins to take hold, Lucy starts to examine her life. Is she an artist or is she a thief who steals the lives of real people to make her fiction? This comedy is fast, fresh—and very intelligent. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
