Here in a most elegant mansion a young well-dressed couple, tired and bored stretch out sleepily before a warm fire - table with coffee service - a little lap dog stands strangely near it's master - the floor littered with playing cards - a tipped over chair, violin and case - a disraught bill collector is exiting right - in a family portrait room beyond a servant yawns and scratches his hair done up in curlers. (Jim Hahn 02/17/95)
