NOTHING IMMEDIATE

PLAY OVERVIEW:
An ominous play set in the lobby of a small rundown motel in Iowa. There, Edna, a morally self-righteous woman is tuned on the radio to her gospel hour when Sandra, a "Liberal New Yorker", arrives seeking refuge for the night. She has come to visit her father dying in a local hospital. An unnerving, uncanny clash ensues between the two women, moving to a terrifying confrontation.

REVIEWS:
"...The playwright creates a vivid metaphor for the unrest that lies at the heart of contemporary life...a gripping work, frightening in the way it develops an ethical clash between two vividly created personalities... moves tautly to a terrifying confrontation...[with] a sad realization that no easily diagrammed truce between the Ednas and Sandras of this world is possible.
-Louisville Courier Journal, KY

"Shirley Lauro's strong one-act [is] realistic, almost slice of life form."
-The Wall Street Journal

"Sinister...taut climax, an exhibition of female dominance. Ms. Lauro writes very well."
-The London Times
