1. Purchase Script 

Waiting for your wife on the bench outside the womens’ dressing room can seem like a life sentence. As Robert waits for his wife to find that special outfit for the company party, he learns that time on the bench can be a living hell. Will the sadistic sales clerk who runs the joint break him? Can he avoid answering the bone chilling question ‘How does this make me look?’ No one can escape from The Bench, right? Try telling that to benchy Robert and fellow “prisoner” Frank.
