 §  Dramatis Personae Chuck Ozgood (m), 42, late night radio talk show host; Nick (m), 33, discoverer of an alien.

 §  Synopsis “Chuck gives an opening monologue to his listeners. It’s a full moon and he’s looking for weird and scary tales. Nick calls in and tells him that he has had an encounter with an alien. Nick sings a song about his mysterious walk through the woods. Nick explains that the alien killed his dog. So he kills the alien and stuffs it in his freezer. Nick sings songs about the alien fight and the alien now in his freezer. Nick, fearing for his life, ends the call to Chuck pre-maturely. Nick sings a song about his house being broken into and his alien being stolen. Chuck receives a tape from Nick and plays it on the air. Nick sings a song about his growing paranoia. Nick breaks into Chuck’s studio and is upset that Chuck is playing the tape on the air.  Nick is overly paranoid. Nick freezes. Every time he ‘sings’ a song, he actually becomes comatose. Chuck calls the police.

§  Comment “Seven scenes. No scene changes. The radio studio is to one side, and all of Nick’s mimed scene locations are on the other side. Lighting can set all the scene changes. The music for songs is available on CD for productions.”

 §  Themes alien, paranoia, radio, supernatural.
