A double-bill of one-acts by Gian Carlo Menotti: The Telephone and The Medium

In The Telephone Ben keeps trying to propose to his girlfriend Lucy, but continuously encounters a very modern day disruption- the telephone. In the end, he must think of a creative way to get Lucy’s attention and ask her that important question. The Medium revolves around Madame Flora (Baba), her daughter Monica and a mute street urchin named Toby. Baba, a sham medium, arranges fake séances to allow her clients to “talk” to their dead loved ones. Things change when Baba experiences something unusual at one of the séances.
