Hello? Operator, please call Murray Hill 4-0098. I've been trying to call them for the last three-quarters of this hour. The line is always busy!
HELLO PLEASE! *chatter*
The play opens with a dreary setting of pill bottles on a bed, late at night.
Oh dear! Oh my! Where is my husband?!
Mrs. Stevenson is waiting for Mr. Stevenson to come home anxiously. She keeps calling his work, but the phone line says it's busy. She then calls the operator. They were able to get "him" on the line.
Oh, I just want him home! Oh that's all! Is that to much to ask?
When Mrs. Stevenson picked up the phone, she didn't hear what she wanted to. She heard two voices. She asked them for her husband and constantly saying hello. No one answered her.
She finally began to realize it. They were saying," She has a window that's open, but the train always passes just in case she screams." She had an idea that it was part of a murder plot, but they seemed to not not hear her over the phone. She got scared so went to her living room.
They began to talk about the weapon to use for this event. He said, " Yes, a knife is okay sir." She then began to panic and really wanted her husband home.
Just as she was walking back to her room, she unexpectedly saw someone. But not her husband.
