Synopsis

The Pot Boiler is a classic of the American stage. It shows Mr. Sud demonstrating how a truly great playwright (himself) constructs a play. For blocking, he uses desktop items such as Mrs. Pencil, Mr. Ruler, Mr. and Miss Ivory (letter openers, of course) and Mr. Inkwell. As he piles cliché upon cliché and the melodramatic plot unfolds, it becomes obvious that this brilliant satire might be describing one or more prominent playwrights of today.
