Time:--The present, early morning.

Place:--A flat in New York City, run down, poorly furnished, messy. 



(The play opens with a puff of smoke. As the lights come up, JEROME enters through the only door at stage left. He is unshaven, disheveled and dirty, and tipsy. He is carrying the remains of a six pack of beer. It is early morning.

JEROME opens the refrigerator, puts in what's left of the six pack; taking one, he opens the beer and drains it.)

NAPOLEON sitting up on the couch so he can be seen by the audience)
So early, my boy? A gentlemen would wait at least, as the English are fond of saying, until the sun drops over the yard arm.

JEROME (slurred)
Well, I'm no gentleman. I can't wait, and who are you? How'd you get in here? Great costume! Do you want a beer? Are you a friend of DeeWayne Pruitt, my old roomy? My fat old roomie -- DeeWayne Pruitt? Have I met you?

NAPOLEON (standing up) A glass of wine would be fine; a good French wine, a Sauterne from Bordeaux, perhaps. Although, it seems a trifle early. No, I think a good country wine to start the day would be better--if you don't mind.

JEROME (Slurred.)
The wine steward is off today, so sorry. No wine. Actually, it's not permitted, his honor, won't allow it. (chuckling)
