Don't Cry for Me, Pasadena
One-Acts 20

By: Michael Vukadinovich
Cast: 2 M, 2 F
Performance Time: Approximately 20-25 minutes, 20 pgs.

COMEDY. A neglected housewife, Irene Pasadena, calls the newspaper and reports that her husband, Jesus, has died just so that people will send her flowers. But the plan goes awry when Thomas, a rookie obituary writer from the local newspaper, arrives at Irene’s doorstep to get the full story on Jesus’ passing. Flustered, Irene seeks the help of her friend, Mary, an avid romance novel reader, to make up a convincing story. Mary tells Thomas that poor Jesus was killed by a savage fawn. But when Jesus comes home from work, Thomas thinks Jesus has risen from the dead, and Jesus is convinced Thomas is having an affair with his wife. This witty comedy will delight with its abundance of one-liners and use of double entendre.
