TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

6

Are you a big shot?

CALVIN

TENNESSEE No, I’m just a large ant in a colony of sycophantic little ants. Any day now, a beetle’s gonna come along and piss all over us and no one will pay any more attention to me. Speaking of which, I think it’s time I made a visit to the little boys’ room. CALVIN You want me to come along and help? TENNESSEE I’ve been handling these matters by myself since long before you were born. But thank you for your kind offer. Stay out here and get to know these nice people. TENNESSEE exits. LOUISA enters. LOUISA So, Mr. William says you met in college, is that right? CALVIN He was just joking. LOUISA I suspected as much. How did you really meet? CALVIN He hired me. LOUISA So, you’re his assistant! I’d heard he was having issues, but I didn’t realize it had come to this. Should you let him drink? CALVIN He hasn’t had a drop since we got here. LOUISA But he seems . . . well, under the influence. CALVIN Oh, that’s probably just from his medicine. He takes a lot of pills. LOUISA Will he be able to make it to the press conference tomorrow morning?
