Crossed Wires or Observations at the Forefront of the Communications Revolution, or a Butterfly in Asia by Jesse Kellerman
NOTE: This play is part of an anthology called 3m1w.
Short, 10-12 minutes
1 female, 3 males
The right half of the stage is a living room. The left half of the stage is a very white room, empty except for a single wooden post with a large switch that can go up or down.
Some mild adult language
An elderly man just wants a glass of club soda. Why do his lights keep turning on and off? Why is his wife suddenly speaking Italian? Why is HE suddenly speaking Italian? This play--about the unexpected results of an experiment gone awry--is a rapid-fire and hilarious comment on the scientific method. (Really, it is.)
(This play can also be performed as part of the full-length play 3m1w.)
