Flemming

A Comedy

By Sam Bobrick


Two Acts


One Set – An upscale Westport, Connecticut living room


Eight Characters – 5 Men, 3 Women


Bored by his mundane life, Henry Flemming, gives up his lucrative business to become a detective. To the horror of his wife and neighbors, Henry's living room soon begins to fill up with bodies. The play is a spoof of the film noir thrillers from the 40's and 50's.


Characters


HENRY FLEMMING – Our hero. An unassuming man in his mid-forties

KAREN FLEMMING – His wife in her late thirties, early forties

STAN SPENCER – The Flemmings pain-in-the-neck neighbor

SUZY SPENCER – Stan's long suffering wife

WALTER LARSEN – Karen's father

LIEUTENANT DAVIS – A plainclothes cop

MISS HAVENHURST – A sweet young thing who has had a tough life

The play was performed at the International Mystery Writers' Festival in Owensboro, KY in June 2008, and won one of the top awards. As an added bonus, the author was made a Kentucky Colonel. The sequel Dinner At The Flemmings is also available.
