Global Warming

Mee, Charles L.

A group of people sit on the terrace having brunch—talking about shopping at Saks, and how to cook quail, and how it is to swim in the bay at Acapulco, and whether blue hydrangeas and Sicily and loofah sponges are in or out, and the time the peasants chopped down the Vienna Woods. In the beginning, the stage is dry. During the piece, water slowly rises, until everyone is underwater and has drowned.. [8-10 actors]

Originally produced under the title "The Investigation of the Murder in El Salvador."
