Robert Stanton played Bill, and Nancy Opel played Betty.
In the play, Bill and Betty have an awkward encounter at a café, but it is continually reset by the ringing of a bell until, finally, they have a connection.
It has been suggested that the connection Bill and Betty (two generic names perhaps meant to represent all people) finally do make, after experiencing many many different sorts of mistakes and rejections, is not a genuine one. Rather, the suggestion is that the relationship finally works out simply as a result of the timing of Bill's answers to Betty's questions. The relationship perhaps works out as a result of Bill superficially overcoming myriad ridiculous stereotypes and social obstacles.
The piece is a common selection for Duo Interpretation teams on competitive speech circuits.
