The shock og recognition & I’m Herbert

by Robert Anderson

I’M HERBERT, directed by Marthe Fraser.  It’s about two old, old people sitting on a porch in a pair of rocking chairs and talking. Just talking—with absolute no clue of how funny they are.  But Henry Vermillion and Lois Read will show you, of course.  Each has had one or more previous marriages and perhaps a few flings, but they are hazy as to details. In fact, they don’t always know which one the other one is.


“THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION” directed by Lois Read.  There is a difference of opinion between an earnest playwright (Frank Simons) and his producer (R.D. Hunting) who hates the opening scene where the husband appears naked to yell at his wife.  The producer wants to cut the scene, the author insists the scene is crucial—after all, it only lasts a second.  An eager, job-hunting actor (Mick Diener) becomes involved and begins to demonstrate just how he would handle the role. Also involved is the producer’s secretary (Marthe Fraser).
