Objective Case

Lewis John Carlino

This is a play which vacillates on a thin line between expressionism and realism. Essentially, it is a story of a man and woman desperately and pathetically in love. Each of these two people has a defect. He likes to pull his ear and scratch his teeth. She likes to blink her eyes and droop her lip. These defects become the symbol of each other's human imperfection and, tragically, also the focal point for each other's ambivalent feelings of hate. The entire play builds to a love scene in which, still cursed by their inability to bare themselves, he and she take refuge behind mannequins. The love scene begins and goes along well enough for a while, both of them expressing their affections from behind the refuge of their inanimate counterparts. Then, each sees the other's defect and the scene explodes in chaos. He and she scream hate at each other as they run off the stage. A moment of silence passes. Then, the mannequins continue the love scene. They introduce themselves as Him and Her, the objective case of He and She. The mannequins fall in love. Strangely enough, the focus of this love are the imperfections that generated hate in their human counterparts.
