TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

9

Don’t be deceived. They’ve paid a small fortune to come here and witness my execution. CALVIN I better get you that wine. CALVIN exits. LOUISA enters. Sits by TENNESSEE. LOUISA It looks like you’ve been abandoned. TENNESSEE The story of my life, my dear. LOUISA I’m sure your assistant will be right back. TENNESSEE Who? LOUISA Mr. Serendapolous. TENNESSEE Oh, yes—my assistant. Frankly, I can’t wait to get him home so he can start giving me the kind of assistance I hired him for. LOUISA (solicitously) I was wondering if I might ask you a favor? After dinner, we’re planning to offer a few items for sale to raise money for the club. Could we trouble you for a few signed copies of the program? And would you be willing to have dinner with some of our patrons sometime? We could auction off “an evening with Tennessee Williams” for, say, six or eight eight people! (brightening at an idea) Or how about doing a dramatic reading? If you’re game, we could arrange a benefit and sell tickets. CALVIN enters with TENNESSEE’s wine. TENNESSEE Help me, Cal! TENNESSEE grabs the glass from CALVIN. Drinks it in one gulp.
