AMICABLE PARTING


  • DPS cream new



Genre: Drama

Author: Kaufman, George S & MacGrath, Leueen

A fifteen minute sketch in which Alicia and Bill Reynolds, an attractive young couple, have quarreled and are planning to separate. Right now they’re in the process of dividing all their possessions, and quarreling considerably more in doing so—everything at all desirable they both claim—all the junk each generously offers to the other. The real trouble comes when the dog walks through the room—a fight over custody of the animal reaches really monumental proportions. Alicia walks out as Bill puts a sentimental record on the phonograph Alicia, who has furiously been labeling everything in the room with her name, reappears, with a label plastered on herself, labeling her as Bill’s.
