Interior Set

Arriving at the library to continue work on his dictionary, Johnson is horrified to discover that the place has been ransacked. Paper is everywhere, so much that the body of his wife, Brenda, is hidden from view. Johnson and his collaborator conclude that the vandalism is the work of Brenda, who was scorned for her lack of talent as a lexicographer. The true explanation is outside the window and beyond, when the significance of the cricketer becomes clear. Originally produced for television, this one act play combines wit, wordplay and a touch of comic absurdity.
