Play #7: FENDI

(The play is set in the studio of a fashion photographer.  He is busy photographing a model—who is busy being photographed)

MODEL:  I am bustling with life.

PHOTOGRAPHER:  But you are too little for the light.

MODEL:  Thicken me with some darkness.

PHOTOGRAPHER (throwing her a handbag):  Take this big black bag.  It will be your exclamation mark!

MODEL: Whose is it?


MODEL: I want a Bakelite buckle to hold.


MODEL (panicky):  My style is easy and modern.  Music is definitely a part of me.  I let you finish my sentences.   I sleep on an inflatable bed.  I am afraid of butterflies.

Photographer:  Hold still.
