The actress grunts as the corsets are too tight. The shoes shoved on the wrong foot.
The dresser’s face is as genial as a stray dog, that buried the bone of simmering animosity.
“Hurry” demands the director.
The dresser drops the actress into the wheelchair, wheels it roughly and shoves her on stage. With no brakes, she screams, careering the width of the boards and exits.
It’s a scene worthy of the stage production of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane.
