Liver for Dinner

Running Time: 10 minutes

Style: Black Comedy. The play is stylized rather than realistic.

Setting: A kitchen that is simple and symbolic.

Characters:

FRANK - a man, in his thirties, who is Gabby's husband.

GABBY - a woman, in her thirties, who is Frank's wife.

COUSIN SAMATHA - a woman, in her late twenties to
early thirties, who is Gabby's cousin.

Plot Summary: A comedy that satirizes a couple in the kitchen who use liver and onions as a flirtatious marital glue, while they attempt to keep the dinner menu a secret from the curious Cousin Samatha. The play demonstrates the impact of how something is said.
