Author: Leon H. Kalayjian

Genre: Satire

Type: Ten minute plays, one act plays

Number of actors: 4-5 – the smaller roles may be doubled. 2F 3M

Ages of the actors: Main characters late 30’s to 50’s, 1 young female caller and two others undetermined.

Suitable for: All ages

Set:
Slightly to one side but in a prominent location, a radio station announcing booth (or a table with two chairs behind it).

On the table is a microphone in front of each chair. On one or both sides is a telephone switchboard. Between the microphones is a fairly large “Kill” button. LISA and JIM sit at the table.
On the other side the three phone callers appear, holding a telephone receiver or cell phone to their ear. These actors are lighted only when “On.” The playwright’s choice is that the players are actually offstage, and we only hear their amplified voices.

Level of Difficulty: 6/10 – a nice short fast paced play for a small cast.
