The Playwright rather enjoys a quiet moment in the local park. It is a good place to mentally sort his ideas - and is often frequented by pretty young ladies. He has always derived a perverse sense of relief upon receiving news that an old friend has developed prostate cancer - because, statistically, it reduces his own chances of being similarly afflicted. And, to be honest, his prostate needs all the support he can muster... The Playwright is a dark comedy about the sex life of a celibate middle-aged man.
