"This is Joe Frank, I'm here at the Bellflower Hotel."
Mock interview of a mime in a hotel room next to a passionate couple who won't stop. Marcel Marceau the sellout, communicating complex idea via mime, Shakespeare in mime, becoming a mime because of having a strange voice as a child, statuary mimes who don't move, blind mimery, mime in huge theaters with props, less is more. A radio performance of the mime piece Either Or. Becoming a nurse instead of a mime. radio performance of the piece Nothing Happened: an idyllic picnic with a strange woman, obsessions with her brother, an artist who read the Magna Carta during dinner and suffered a breakdown, her brother disappears, finding meaning while being forced to dress as a woman and dance in class. Monologue: I've always hated mime, the mime defense based on murder after a mime performance. One side of a bizarre telephone conversation. Monologue: I want what you just heard to dwell within you, an academic paper on it.
