TENNESSEE WILLIAMS WINS A PRIZE

13

TENNESSEE Oh, no, no, no! I won’t be in any condition to meet my firing squad. CALVIN Yes, yes, yes! I promised that lady you’d be there. And it’ll be good for your career. TENNESSEE What do you know about my career? You’re just some hustler I met in a bar. What have you ever managed? CALVIN I managed to get you out of that reception. And now I’m gonna manage to get you home. TENNESSEE Why in the name of Tallulah Bankhead’s flea-bitten fur coat do you want to take on such an impossible challenge? It would be a lot easier to go back to that bar and pick up another trick. Use your beauty while you’ve still got it, baby. CALVIN You need help. TENNESSEE What do you know about my needs? CALVIN One look at you and anyone can see you got needs. And I don’t see anyone else volunteering. So, I’m gonna take care of you. TENNESSEE No, no, no! This is all wrong! It’s not how it would happen! CALVIN I don’t understand. TENNESSEE breaks away from CALVIN. Addresses the audience. TENNESSEE This isn’t the way I’d write it. I’ll show you how it’s done. TENNESSEE goes back to CALVIN. TENNESSEE is very drunk. TENNESSEE (CONT’D)
