Dori Appel Playwright and Poet 


Little Boxes

Mildred, is a refined older lady who prides herself on her artistic sense, and knows in her heart that she is definitely not a Mildred. Could a Mildred have acquired more than two hundred lovely miniature boxes in every shape and from every country you can think of, without a single duplication? This monologue reveals how Mildred's desperate and illegal way of building her collection results finally in a terrifying exposure and a cliff-hanging narrow escape.
