©1997 by David Valdes Greenwood, script/rights available from David Valdes Greenwood, 377 Highland Avenue, Somerville MA 02144-2505, U.S.A. Cited to Small-Cast One-Act Guide Online by David Valdes Greenwood, via e-mail dvgreenwood@emerson.edu, March 4, 1997. Greenwood says,

Dramatis Personae "Fang (m); Mitch (m), Coyote's father; Fern (f), Coyote's mother; Coyote (m)

Synopsis "Coyote is a normal human who has come out as a coyote to his human parents, Mitch and Fern. The shock sends them careening through the stages of grief-in ten minutes flat. Fang, Coyote's denmate, narrates the not-quite-touching story, as the folks realize that they can exploit their son's identity for personal gain-the perfect reason to break down and howl for joy."
