  § Dramatis Personae Candi (f), an aging model; Tiffani (f), 7, beauty queen; Bud (m), Candi’s latest husband; Maria (f), neighbor.

  § Synopsis “Candi’s not going to let anyone stop Tiffani from becoming Little Miss Hog Jowls—especially not a
mangy Chihuahua like Sugarbooger.  So when Sugarbooger shows up for rehearsal late, drunk, and with an attitude, Candi’s more than a little pissed.  And that’s before she finds out he’s quitting the act to live with the neighbors.

  § Comment “‘Hola, Sugarbear’ premiered on July 28, 1997, at the City Theater Company’s 1997 Delaware 10-Minute Play Festival in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.A. There are two scenes and one set. Production
requirements are minimal. Sugarbooger the Chihuahua is always hidden from view.”

  § Themes abuse, beauty pageant, dysfunctional family, ethnic heritage.
