BUT I’M FRENCH – ONE ACT ROMANTIC COMEDY PLAYS
Charles is convinced that he’s actually French – to the extent that he speaks in a French accent, and talks garbled ‘French’ to total strangers that he meets. This annoys his girlfriend, Penelope to no end. When he befriends two confused French girls and talks to them in ‘French,’ Penelope is embarrassed and begs him to stop. But Charles won’t be deterred and thinks he knows a way to convince Penny that he is in fact French.
