Exit, Stage Left
Act One

The act opens in the foyer of a California mansion.

A doorbell rings. No reply is seen or heard. There is an uneasy pause, then a knocking which begins softly and increases in volume until the door is being pounded upon; then this too ceases.


[calling from offstage] James! [again, louder] James!

The double doors leading outside open to admit a young woman. A printed notice is seen hanging from the doorknob.


What in the world is going on? Where are you, James?

She walks off into the main hall in search of James.
