Double D 

A Short Play
By Jim Dalglish

Mary is on her way to her impossibly thin step-sister’s engagement party, when she has a shoe emergency.  Where the hell will she be able to find a pair of 12 Double E pumps at this time of night?  

"Feel the power?  The thrill of 3-inch spikes. There’s a reason they’re called spikes, Mary.  Because they’re weapons.  Like two 45 Caliber pistols strapped to each ankle.  Power, Mary.  Power." - Nigel
