One Tit, A Dyke And Gin

Synopsis:
Louise has a doctor's appointment - she has recently had a breast removed. She takes off her clothes, puts them in a cupboard - which locks shut and puts on a paper gown ready for the examination. However, the doctor and nurse have forgotten she is there and close for the night locking her in. She telephones Miss Tate who works in the clothing department of a store where she has an account and asks her to bring her something to wear. Louise finds some cigarettes in a drawer and lights up when the Night Security Officer bursts in ordering her to put out the cigarette and put her hands up. But she cannot do both. The officer, Rosemary does not believe Louise's story to begin with but soon a sort of friendship develops. Rosemary tries telephoning her girl friend Gina to ask her to bring something over for Louise to wear but there is no reply. Rosemary thinks that she is in the dog house as she has forgotten it was their anniversary. The two start to play cards - gin - and Louise, much to Rosemary's chagrin wins each time. Gina arrives with champagne to celebrate, followed by Miss Tate with clothes. Whilst Louise is putting them on, Miss Tate reveals that her partner of 38 years had recently died - Louise had not realised that Miss Tate was lesbian. The four decide that they will meet regularly to play poker.
