Play #1: Conic Section

There is a large metal cone on stage.
Two men, the sculptor and a gallery-goer,
stand on each side of it, both on tiptoes in
order to see one another.

Gallery-goer (pointing at the cone): “It doesn’t seem enough.”

Sculptor:  “No, it’s enough. Actually, it’s too much.”

Gallery-goer: “How do you mean?”

Sculptor: “My wife and two children are under there.  And my dog,”

The dog barks. They both gaze balefully at the cone.
