It's the opening night of what has the buzz of being a spectacular new but heavily dramatic play, "Hot Sands". No one will be seated during the first ten minutes after the curtains go up because of the serious and integral nature of the scene. People are scrambling for last minute tickets, all that is left being the poorer seats, that is before the performance eventually sells out minutes before show time. Mrs. Walker Pendleton is waiting in front of the theater for her husband to arrive, he who has their tickets. As he is nowhere to be seen, she believes he must have left a ticket for her somewhere. As it gets closer to curtain, she speaks to whoever she can to find her ticket, at the expense of others being able to get theirs or get into the theater. When Mr. Pendleton eventually does arrive, another issue arises which threatens either Mr. or Mrs. Pendleton being able to see the show, as well as perhaps their marriage. Written by
