Squirrels is a comedy about Arthur, a middle-aged, egotistical hack writer, who has been working on the opening line of a story involving a man’s encounter with a squirrel for fifteen years, and Edmond, the young fledgling writer he has hired as a secretary/collaborator. They soon discover that Arthur’s flamboyant redundancy clashes with Edmond’s mediocre melodramatic style, as they each develop increasingly ridiculous scenarios for the story. They are joined by Arthur’s cleaning lady , also an aspiring writer, whose suggestions seem to be the most promising, but they eventually bog down in banality.
Characters are Arthur, 40+, Edmond, 20-40 (ideally), Cleaning Lady, 40+ (ideally)
