Additional Info

Interior Designs is a masterly observation of human relationships and conflicting viewpoints by Jimmie Chinn. Him, a brash, arrogant odd job man, is offering his "services" to three women: Holly, a successful TV-am newsreader; Irene, a solitary school teacher; and Amy, a frustrated housewife. Although of very different backgrounds, the three women share a common fate of loneliness and frustration. The play follows their yearning to fill the emptiness of their lives and their various attempts to trap the eligible Him. For his part, Him wriggles out of it and, putting his coat on, silently goes out of their lives leaving a surrealistic abyss of desperation.
