A book of scenes for two or more actors. The brevity of the pieces preclude them from being appropriate in many forensic and theater competition settings, and by the author's own admission, the selections contain no lessons to learn or issues to discuss and so would not be useful to study in a classroom setting. Drama teachers might find the scenes handy to use with novice actors, as there are few character or language challenges for students. However, while some of them are funny, many are mean-spirited, rife with stereotypes, or uninspired. Most of the selections should be described as vignettes, not as short plays.
