Jeanne and Boyd try to spice up their twenty-fifth anniversary by role-playing as a lady of the evening and her client on a street corner on the other side of town, when they run into an old college friend - and then the law.
The play is available from the playwright, or on the New Play Exchange.

Alaska production

This play doesn't get done very often - which I think is a pity, and I'm not sure why. It's charming and funny... but perhaps it's because many people don't want to think of their grandparents having an active sex life. The last production was during the shut down, part of the Virtual Short Play Festival by the Anchorage Community Theatre.
