In this award-winning comedic tragedietta, Fitch Todd, a dried-out composer, has lost all motivation to live; his publisher conspires to pull him out of his doldrums for selfish reasons. Dramatica Press plays are designed to enhance readability of the stageplay format by creating a new ergonomic layout and using color to easily differentiate between character names, dialogue, parentheticals, and stage directions. Characters FITCH TODD - Fitch is an older man, a bed-ridden composer, safely in his sixties (his glasses make him look like Trotsky). MEREDITH TODD - His wife, is a woman in her late forties or early fifties. EARL BROWNING - His publisher, is a distinguished looking, silver-haired gentleman (a cross between Colonel Sanders and Lenin), probably in his early seventies. He is using this opportunity to 'test the waters' with Meredith.
