TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

A press conference?

7

CALVIN (trying to understand)

LOUISA All the media will be there. It’s a great opportunity for the Club to get some publicity. And I imagine Mr. Williams would welcome some good press himself. CALVIN I’ll make sure he goes. Where is it? LOUISA It’s at Sardi’s at 10AM. CALVIN He’ll be there, don’t you worry. LOUISA He’s very lucky to have you. CALVIN Thank you. LOUISA exits. TENNESSEE enters. TENNESSEE What an ordeal! There were no urinals in the men’s room, so I had to use the sink. Then these women descended on me and started screaming louder than the Furies! CALVIN You prob’ly wandered into the ladies’ room by mistake. TENNESSEE That thought did cross my mind. I’m not ashamed to tell you the experience shook me down to my very core. But when I came out and saw your heavenly vision across the room, my equilibrium was restored. Thank god you’re still here! CALVIN Why wouldn’t I be? TENNESSEE They don’t always stay. Especially if I’ve already paid them. I paid you, right, baby? CALVIN Just a down payment, “baby.” We’ll settle up accounts later.
