The Comfort Zone

A One-Act Play with a Cast of 2

Full Synopsis

This play concerns the relationship of two men who live side-by-side in two separate rooms. The older, reclusive man, Otto, is content with his life and his room. Trent, the younger man, whose room is practically bare, is envious of Otto and seeks his advice on how to make his room more comfortable. Otto makes some suggestions but the most dramatic change comes when Trent finds a mattress in the hallway and drags it into his room.
