A play about love (and hate) and the way people change each other.
Why Do We Laugh Script
At age 6, Meredith Wilfred loves to tell people that she hates her neighbor, Andrew Powers. At age 16, she tells Andrew the same thing but goes to the dance with him anyway. At 45, Meredith and Andy have a great deal to tell each other: most married couples do. And, even at 66, Meredith is still learning about, and from, Andrew. This is a fine contest play because it is both easy to stage and a challenge. All eight charactersetwo people at four different times in their liveseare onstage at the same time. The result is a play about love (and hate) and the way people change each other. Bare stage. Approximate running time: 35 minutes.
