About the Play:

Sex on the Sixth Floor is a full-length comedy by John Patrick, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Teahouse of the August Moon. These three one-act plays reveal three amorous events all taking place in different apartments on the sixth floor of an enormous New York apartment building. There are three characters (one female, two male) in each playlet and those three actors play the different roles in the different apartments.

In Tenacity a rather shy young man is treated like a poodle by his girl friend, but with the help of his bulldog tenacity – and a dash of duplicity, he is "rewarded" – almost.

In Ambiguity a young police officer is detailed to dress up as a woman to decoy muggers in the Park. Having donned feminine attire, he is saved a trip to the Park by being mugged in his own apartment.

In Frustration an actress, well-known for playing prostitutes with conviction, is employed by a wealthy father to determine the sexual inclinations of his effeminate son.

Sex on the Sixth Floor has been performed in regional repertory, college, and community theatre productions.

Cast: 1 female, 2 male

About the Playwright:

John Patrick (1905-1995) was a prolific American playwright and screenwriter, writing more than a dozen screenplays and some 30 plays. He had several Broadway successes, most notably Teahouse of the August Moon (which was awarded a Pulitzer, a Tony and a New York Drama Critics Circle Award) and The Hasty Heart. His movie scripts are impressive with Three Coins in a Fountain, The Shoes of the Fisherman and The World of Suzie Wong as well as adaptations of the two plays mentioned above. His "Opal" series of plays remain popular with high schools and community theatres.
