Four one-acts by Robert Patrick, early Off-Off-Broadway’s most produced playwright.

Three castaways in Un Bel Di (3 m or 3 f), more at-sea than they realize, find that their temperaments are more difficult to deal with than the elements.

Oooooops!!! (2 m.) is iconic of the sixties when the word peace was confrontational, and so a young man is killed in front of Congress for impudence.

In Tarquin Truthbeauty (1 m, 1 f), two scientists from a world-wide conspiracy attempt to destroy all beauty.

Simultaneous Transactions (2 m, 2 f,  4 children) returns to the anti-war sentiment of the time, with children being taught to hate by parents who may not realize what they’re doing.
