TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

3

A hotel ballroom. We see just the head table. It has two chairs and place settings. A third chair sits off to the side. LOUISA paces nervously. LOUISA He’s already 45 minutes late—what impertinence! TENNESSEE enters with CALVIN. TENNESSEE is drunk. LOUISA Oh, there you are! Mr. Williams, what an honor it is to meet you. I’m Louisa Dragoni. TENNESSEE Now, Louisa, dear, I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve brought someone along with me. LOUISA Your publicist didn’t say anything about a guest. TENNESSEE Then I shall fire the blackguard in the morning! LOUISA Oh, really, it’s no bother. TENNESSEE He didn’t know. Nor did I for that matter. You see, my friend arrived unexpectedly this afternoon. Allow me to introduce my old, old friend, Mr. Calvin Serendipity. CALVIN (aside to Tennessee—correcting him) It’s Serendapolous. TENNESSEE Are you sure? CALVIN Uh, yeah. TENNESSEE Funny, I’ve gotten that wrong all these years. (to Louisa) Then allow me to present Mr. Calvin Serendapolous.
