Squirrels is a play in which two writers are struggling with writer's block. It tells the story of Arthur, a middle-aged hack who has been working on the same paragraph involving a man's encounter with a squirrel for fifteen years, and Edmond, the fledgling writer he has hired as a secretary-cum-ego booster. Together they form a satire a bad writing everywhere. They are joined by The Cleaning Woman, tries to help them learn more about themselves and discover for herself what is truly 'good writing.' It is a play about loss and the new beginning that results in the ending of another.
Author David Mamet
