As it turns out, need I say, the buddy never does become a painter. He goes into his father's real estate business and marries the girl Shine adored.
So the artist holes up in his loft, painting terrible pictures and dreaming about the girls he never gets while satisfying himself with a lovely and quite real prostitute When the play ends, he is still nowhere-still painting though now relieved of taking himself seriously-and so at last capable of doing something.
For Schisgal and for me the only thing that counts is what you do. Properly, the ending is neither sweet-though it may seem that way-nor sour. It is merely right and the play of course, is the story of an artist.

Lionel Morris, an eminent psychiatrist, is on the verge of withdrawing to a life of Buddhist contemplation. The doctor's plan is to have Louie move into the family's luxurious apartment while he analyzes him, but, as luck would have it, a young black deliveryman, Lewis, strays by and is mistaken for Louie--a misconception with which he readily goes along. When the real Louie shows up Lewis conceals him in a guest room and gives him reams of the doctor's questionnaires to fill out, while he pursues his own scheme of hustling the good doctor into putting up the money for a tap-dancing school in Harlem.
Adding to the general confusion are, among others, the doctor's vapid wife, who is carrying on an affair with a military man friend of the family; a lascivious Swedish maid who can't keep her hands off Lewis; a bogus "French" cook and maid; a near-sighted burglar; and the military man's opera-loving wife--all of whom make their individual, and very funny contributions both to the increasing merriment of the play and to the trenchant, underlying observations which liven and illuminate it.

Monologues, I find, rarely generate the same kind of dramatic tension as character interaction. With one-act play festivals of one kind or another littering the theatrical landscape all over the world, the genre, once a kind of dramatic footnote, has become more and more popular. Perhaps they are everywhere because theater companies find them economical to produce on limited budgets.
Perhaps they are popular because they appeal to the notorious short attention spans of modern audiences. Whatever the reason, they are here in numbers and they are here to stay.
With an impressive list of international directors providing interpretations of their own local legends, the blood-soaked 'Field Guide to Evil' brings surreal nightmares to life.
