Elaine May’s Adult Entertainment from The Klunch, an erudite offshoot from its Cherry Red roots (Review)

What do you think of this script for a possible Merchant/Ivory film? Fade in on Melissa, a young, very three-dimensional woman, sitting on a lounge chair in her underwear. Tina, her faithful maid, comes in to tell Melissa that her lover is at the door — with another man. They reminisce about Melissa’s first date — a night at the prom with her long-ago boyfriend, Bud.

Vixen (Zoe Walpole) calls in. I do not believe that these are their real names, but the text is silent on the issue.
