The Proverbial Billet

Clifford Davis

Short Play, Comedy  /  2f, 2m

The Bloggs family - father, mother, daughter Amy - prepre to have a soldier billeted on them. They greet the young man with a flow of inane chatter, mostly couched in proverbial form, and clearly hope to make a match between him and the simpering and unattractive Amy. Finally he successed in interrupting, with the news that it is all a mistake and no soldier is coming.
