Two years before his high school graduation, he was already planning on writing a one-act play which would be based on his 10-year class reunion. The protagonist would be single, as the playwright expected himself to be in a dozen years, and the central struggle of the play, the drama that would captivate audiences and draw praise from envious critics (!), would be the protagonist’s triumph over his simmering hostility towards his classmates. He was challenged, though, to come up with an appropriate title — something that was neither melodramatic nor ostentatious. Yes, the title was a problem.
