Typical Ketchum fair about two lesbians in the woods. Nov 22, Glenn Alcorn rated it it was ok. Overall poorly written compared to his other work. He doesn't workout as a playwright. The monologue at the end was a very poor attempt at some "gay rights" sob-story. Sep 22, Gevera Bert rated it it was ok.

The plays themselves are well written, as is all of Ketchum's work. The third play is basically a short story that he used at the beginning of his novel Lost. The first play is based on the confession of the Boston Strangler.
Triptych – Three Short Plays
The second play provides an excellent example of a couple who have been together too long and would rather talk at each other than to each other. Their dialogue isn't so much a conversation that it is two people talking to themselves and expecting the other person to be an attentive ear. It reminded me of some of David Mamet's early work.
These were written when Ketchum was young, and you can feel his skillful dialogue that makes his novels so great waiting to break through. I makes the Kindle version hard to read.
