The Private Ear & The Public Eye

by Peter Shaffer

 

The Private Ear

 

Synopsis: Produced on Broadway and in London with The Public Eye. This is a tender account of a rueful romance. The boy has invited to his hovel for dinner a girl he met at a concert. In the interim he has romanticized her as another Venus, and not to appear gauche, he has asked his man about town friend to coach him. When the girl arrives, she is a very common sort and he is awkward to the point of clumsiness, and destroys the mood. She slaps him for trying to kiss her forcibly. She departs, and he returns to his record, now badly scratched, and the curtain descends on a broken love song.
