Product


Hello from some unfamiliar airline's lounge at Chicago's beautiful O'Hare International Airport.

This was a one act, one man play called Product. The name of the actor isn't in the program but I think is was Joe - something Irish. Maybe Murphy. The character (he's got some Willie Loman in him, I think) might be an independent movie producer. He's trying to pitch a Hollywood money person on his new concept, a film as yet unnamed. A beautiful American woman falls in love with a mysterious neighbor. She marries him, only to find out he is a Jihadi warrior bent on destruction of the U.S. Lots of his terrorist friends show up at their home. What should she do - betray her country or the man she loves?

Or something to that effect. The actor rages, cajoles and pleads with moneybags. Nothing gets resolved. Nothing really ever does, does it?
