An Adult Evening of Sketch Comedy
THE STORIES: Lauded poet, songwriter, and author of childrens books, the incomparable Shel Silverstein also wrote dozens of short plays, which are deeply infused with the same wicked sense of humor that made Silverstein famous. DREAMERS. Nick and Ritchie are plumbers trying to unclog a drain, but Ritchies worried about a dream he had where he slept with another man. Nick tries to calm his fears. Its symbolic, he tells Ritchie, just like the dreams Nick had of sleeping with his own mother and daughter.  ALL COTTON. Jill is furious because the guaranteed not-to-shrink blouse she bought shrunk six sizes in the wash, and Rachel, the store clerk, wont give her a cash refund. But Jill, it seems, is a witch, and when she does not get satisfaction, she casts a spell on the store and everything in it.  HARD HAT AREA. Pauley and Ed sit on a girder in a construction site. Pauley wears a hard hat, but Ed doesnt. While Ed eats his lunch, Pauley tries to convince him that he should take his destiny in his own hands and wear a hard hat so as not to be killed accidentally or he should kill himself but not just leave it to chance.  ABANDON ALL HOPE. Al and Benny stand before a giant portal. A sign above the portal reads Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. Benny is more than a little frightened, but Al has no intention of abandoning his hope, as the two debate the precise meaning of the sign.  HAVE A NICE DAY. Ben, Al, and Cyrus try to take the symbols for Peace and Have a nice day and combine thembelieving that both of these ideas can coexist in one symbol. Trying to accomplish this leads to conflict and a lousy day.  ONE TENNIS SHOE. Harvey needs to broach a delicate subject with his wife. He claims Sylvia is becoming a bag lady, but she protests that her Bloomingdales shopping bag doesnt make her a bag lady. No, says Harvey, but the picture frame, couch cushion, and single tennis shoe retrieved from the garbage do. Not to mention the cold cooked oatmeal in her purse.   THE BEST DADDY. Lisas got the best daddy in the world. After all, he bought her a pony for her birthday. Too bad he shot it dead. Or did he? Maybe it was Lisas older sister.  THE LIFEBOAT IS SINKING. Jen and Sherwin sit safely on their bed, but Jen forces her husband to imagine they are on a sinking boat in the middle of a terrible storm. Waves fill the boat with water; there are no life jackets; and Sherwin must decide whether he should throw his mother overboard or condemn them all to die. SMILE. Bender and his henchmen drag Gibby into a room and throw him to the ground. Gibby protests that he hasnt done anything wrong, but Bender and the others know better. They have found the man responsible for the '70s smiley face and the phrase Have a nice day, and theyre going to make him pay.
