About the Play:

The volume Romance contains two one-act comedies by Tom Topor. This pair of romantic comedies is a real delight. Here to Stay focuses on a husband and wife who prove to be hopelessly inept bank robbers. But Not For Me is a comedy about the breakup of a marriage. The plays may be presented separately or as an evening of entertainment.

Here to Stay focuses on a husband and wife who prove to be hopelessly inept bank robbers. The play takes place during the depression, and it turns out the couple have been robbing banks to earn enough money so they can have a baby. (First staged in 1978 at Riverside Theatre in the historic Riverside Church in the Upper West Side of Manhattan; Cast: 1 female, 2 male)

But Not for Me is about a couple who are splitting up and have come to their accountant's office to divide their possessions. Unlike the couple in Here to Stay, this is an urban, sophisticated, well matched couple, but love in the 1980's is just not the same as love in the 1930's. (First staged in 1976 by Theatre at Noon in New York City; Cast: 1 female, 2 male)

What people say about But Not for Me:

"A charming comedy about the odd things that people do, and don't do, for love." — New York Post
