Anatomically Correct: Nine Short Plays by J.F. Dacey

ISBN #1-60513-090-7
JAC #20

Included in the Collection:

  • OXYMORONS: A Tai Chi class somewhere near Boston. The tranquil serenity of a Tai Chi exercise is shattered by the extreme reactions to an innocent question.
  • SUNDAY DRIVE: Two couples, one traveling behind the other, are drawn by coincidence, misinterpretation, and quick tempers to a sudden, violent climax.
  • CONFESSION: A lapsed Catholic goes to confession for the first time in 42 years, and unburdens himself of the woes of the world.
  • SPAM RIVER MYTHOLOGY: A cacophony of 21st-century technobabble, delivered by six black-clad women whose faces are illuminated only by the flashlights they carry.
  • MIDNIGHT FANTASIA: In a chance gathering of five characters, each tries to demonstrate his own favorite part of a particular ballet, each with disastrous results. This play has no dialogue; it is all action and choreographed pantomime.
  • EXPLETIVES NOT DELETED: Two couples, sitting around the campfire late at night, get into an exhaustive discussion of the most notorious word in the English language.
  • IMPERFECT: God consults with his top two Designer Angels about the anatomy of the soon-to-be created human race. Details of the male reproductive organ are still in the works.
  • ROOM 29: A middle-aged man visits an honest working lady, only to find out that she will not be able to provide him with what his is looking for.
  • ONE IN A MILLION: A single sperm cell fights his way ahead of all the others to be first in line to fertilize the egg, only to discover that the egg isn’t in the mood.
