ON HOW TO ACCOMMODATE MARLO’S FRYING PAN – ONE ACT FOR A CAST OF 5.

Marlo has a problem with her frying pan. She can’t get rid of it. Worse, she never knows what to do with it or why she has it or how she even got it. Every day, it’s the same old, same old, and she feels like everyone else makes fun of her for it—her so-called friends—with all their ideas that also never work out. They have their issues, too! In fact, everyone has something they have to deal with on a daily basis. And in Marlo’s case, it’s a frying pan in this one act for a cast of 5.

Poor Marlo. She’s frustrated. She’s mad. And she can’t tell anymore if she needs to find out the How or the Why.  All she can come up with is a lot of Maybes. Of course, maybe it’s never been about Why she is where she is, but about What she is while she’s there. (Right? Maybe). Sigh. Then again, maybe what matters is simply knowing that there’s safety in numbers—even if, and maybe especially if, those numbers are all…odd.
