The Go-Between

Written by Roy Proctor

After a young lady spurns her beau because she suspects him of philandering, he follows her into a park in one final effort to make amends before embarking on a new life in Alaska. Since the young lady refuses to listen to his entreaties, he enlists a street-wise boy to be his go-between. Trouble is, the boy continually confuses what he’s supposed to say. Can the remnants of their romance survive this continual miscommunication?
