A Short Play
By Jim Dalglish
Mary is on her way to her impossibly thin step-sister’s engagement party, when she has a shoe emergency. Where the hell will she be able to find a pair of 12 Double E pumps at this time of night?
"Feel the power? The thrill of 3-inch spikes. There’s a reason they’re called spikes, Mary. Because they’re weapons. Like two 45 Caliber pistols strapped to each ankle. Power, Mary. Power." - Nigel
