Act 1 summary
There is a bunch of quarters, dimes & nickels all over the ground outside. There is a female stooping down picking up every single coin mumbling under her breath very bitterly. A shadow figure of a man stands over her from behind. This scene signifies change. Perhaps the more we change the more things are the same. Judy reminds Abe she is a damsel in distress. Abe just wants to get Judy’s phone number and shake her hand politely. Judy reminds Abe that she just finished picking up change off of a NYC street and it’s filthy with bum piss. Abe reminds Judy that it’s as simple as carrying a phone and a wallet. Who still carries a change purse? Judy points out she does as Judy Purse which is her real name.
