This hysterical play This light-hearted parody of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie is one of Durang's most popular one acts.

The Chalky White Substance: Two haggard male figures meet at the edge of a vast canyon, overlooking a dried-out riverbed, in a future where the fallout from unnamed and uncountable nuclear wars continually floats through the air.
It is the chalky white substance that covers the few inhabitants as they scramble in darkness and fear, fighting for the scarce, but indispensable, resources of water, food, shelter and human warmth.
I'm Herbert is a sketch about two old, old people sitting on a porch in a pair of rocking chairs and talking.
Just talking-and of course they don't know how funny they are. Each has had one or more previous marriages and perhaps a few flings, but they are hazy as to details. In fact, they don't always know which one the other one is.
