About "Look It Up- A Monologue"
A character has just grocery shopped and before returning home, voted at the local polling site. A word, repress, written on the back of an envelope while standing in one line or the other, has prompted the voter, once home, to look it up in dictionaries set aside on the kitchen counter. One word leads to another.
