The tough-talking landlady of a French Quarter rooming house has had enough complaints from her pretentious tenant, Mrs. Hardwicke-Moore, especially since the rent is overdue. Coming to the lady's rescue is a slovenly writer who makes a case for holding onto fictions and fantasies as a way to cope in life. Desiree Ledet and Kathryn Talbot (left) spar in this rarely seen short play.
