We also saw the stage play, "Absurd Person Singular." What a play! It was ostensibly a farce, and had lots of funny dialogue and scenes, but underneath all the farce was a pretty heart breaking story. The play follows three couples (an architect and his wife, a banker and his wife, and a contractor and his wife) as they get together over three successive Christmas Eves. First off, the contractor couple is hosting the architect couple and banker couple, who really look down their noses at the contractor. The next Christmas Eve, the hot-shot architect's building has collapsed, so he has to go begging to the contractor for work, while he's still looking down his nose at the contractor. The third Christmas Eve finds the banker pretty much without funds and relying on the contractor to run his business through the bank, and still (guess what!) looking down his nose at the contractor.
