 THE SHOCK OF RECOGNITION breaks in on a difference of opinion between an earnest young dramatist and his matter-of-fact producer who doesn’t like the opening moment of the play. A wife is having breakfast in bed and she says something to her husband, who is in the bathroom. So he comes out, jaybird naked, and yells to her. ‘You know I can’t hear you when the water’s running.’ The producer doesn’t think this confrontation is quite nice or necessary. The author insists that the scene is quite important—and, after all, it lasts only an instant. So a quarrel over taste develops, and a job-hunting actor becomes involved. He eagerly begins to strip, demonstrating how he would handle the role. Also involved is the producer’s secretary.
