Calling All Extras

by Eva Gurfein

Her beauty is like her happiness – stunningly conventional. She likes to imagine her world in black and white. She is Greta’s Grand Hotel when she wants to be alone and Marlena’s Montecarlo after striking gold. The script has been written, exits and entrances preset. Play your part well and your minor character may develop past the first act. Most likely, however, it will not – only one name appears on the marquee.
