It's a long winter for American playwrights, as opposed to screenwriters or TV writers who earn big bucks turning out largely prefabricated stuff. And, symbolically, playwright Julie Jensen has taken a vacation, not in the Bahamas or Cancun but on a snowy waste in a motel overlooking Lake Michigan. She discreetly indicated that she was with a friend, which warmed things up some.

Five scenes spanning 40 years, Julie Jensen's "Two-Headed" is about a lifelong friendship tested, challenged and shaped by the Mormon Church and patriarchal America. "I wanted to see how big a story I could tell with two people," explained Jensen, a native of Beaver, Utah, whose most recent Los Angeles success was "Last Lists of My Mad Mother." In her 1998 work, subtitled a "play of history," Jensen displays a taut sense of craft.

A man who was convicted of poisoning and suffocating his wife was sentenced in Kenosha to life in prison without parole. Before she was killed, his wife had written a letter foreshadowing that her death might be suspicious. Mark Jensen, 48, was found guilty last week of first-degree intentional homicide, a crime that carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison. The decision on whether he was eligible for parole was left to the judge. "I've come to the conclusion that if I were to impose anything less than the maximum sentence in this case, I'd feel I had cheated the other people because your crime is so enormous, so monstrous, so unspeakably cruel, that it overcomes all other considerations," Judge Bruce E. Schroeder said.

For example, the repeated belches of a trucker (Granville Ames, displaying remarkable timing) are among the comic highlights of "White Money."
