TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

8

TENNESSEE Oh, honey, there isn’t enough money or forgiveness in the world to settle up my accounts. CALVIN I bet you’re a good writer—the way you talk and all. What’s that accent? Where are you from? TENNESSEE Oh, here and there. Mostly the land of daily disappointments and occasional flights of wonderment. CALVIN You’re funny. I like you. TENNESSEE I bet you say that to all your johns. CALVIN I don’t talk to most of my johns. You’re different. TENNESSEE Let’s drink to differences! Now who do you suppose I have to screw to get a drink around here—other than you, baby? CALVIN What would you like? TENNESSEE A glass of red wine would be most appreciated. CALVIN Wait right here. CALVIN gets up. TENNESSEE Don’t worry. I’m not about to leave the comfort of my seat and confront that multiheaded medusa out there. CALVIN (looking at the audience) You mean those people? They look nice enough. TENNESSEE
