Dorothee and Virginia are in the middle of their first rehearsal
START: Dorothee: I know this must be hard to step in like this, but you are doing a great job.
Virginia: I don’t mean to terrify you, but . . . this is my first show.
Dorothee: (Terrified) That is brave. I mean—this show!
Virginia: I’m hoping it shocks my parents. When can I meet the playwright?
[... ... ...]
END: Dorothee: Oh. Smith. As in College?
Virginia: Yes. I’ve been around lots of girls, so that should help . . . in this play.
Dorothee: What will shock your parents the most: that you are playing in a Jewish company? That you are playing a Jewish girl? Or that you are playing a girl in love with a prostitute?
Virginia: I hope all of it! (She laughs)
