• Cited by playwright via ftp, May 8, 1997; Crawford says,
Sammy (m), __, _______; Paul (m), __, _______; Tina (f), __, _______.
“Sammy introduces himself to the audience and then reveals the general murder plot. Paul then introduces himself to the audience in a monologue, in which he confirms the murder plot to the audience. Both Sammy and Paul detail the ‘murder night’ to the audience. Each claims responsibility for the murder of Tina. Sammy reveals his motives are that Tina prevents Paul’s gayness. Paul reveals his motives are that Tina cheated on him with Paul and that his motive for murder was revenge. A small caption segment bridges Tina’s monologue introducing herself. Police question Sammy in another monologue. Paul swears he has seen Tina’s ghost in another monologue. Tina reveals that Sammy and Paul are her brothers, and that she killed herself because of longtime incest with her brothers. Each actor—each with a different motive—shoots the other two actors. In a three-way dialogue, the three characters reiterate motives and resolve actions.”
