Summary

In a metropolitan park that is home to several bums, winos, and bag ladies, Big Moe and Zsa Zsa emerge from their cardboard box homes to panhandle from the passersby. Their ludicrous tales of woe include the loss of Zsa Zsa's entire family during a bull run in Spain and Big Moe's ill- fated life as an artist, painting his beautiful young girlfriend as she posed as an innocent bent on suicide at the top of the Empire State Building. The play is easy to mount and is a true crowd pleaser. [One-Act Play. 20 pages. Simple or no set.]
