2 Shorts in Black & White:
Count Dracula’s Café (10-minute comedy)
Count Dracula no longer likes the ballet, nor does he understand the opera and he hasn't gone to the theatre in a quarter century. In short, he's lost his creativity and his joy of life. The reason is the FDA banned homosexual blood donors over twenty-five years ago. With an all hetero blood supply (most of which is diabetic) Count Dracula longs to suck the blood of a few homos and restore his “gay, carefree” soul. His solution is to buy a Starbucks Cafe—because that’s where the queers hang out. The count figures with all that latte, and a bunch of screaming fags, he'll be back in the pink (and loving the opera again) by sunset. 3 actors, 10+ minutes, simple set.

Plays

  • ABIDE WITH ME, a MONOLOGUE, 10 minute version
    Billy "Boo Boo Bear" Wallace, male, 68, is about to celebrate his 52nd anniversary with a half dozen of his closest friends and . . . his partner’s ghost.
  • ABIDE WITH ME (full version)
    While waiting to be married, Billy “Boo Boo Bear” Wallace and Mikey “Yogi Bear” Parker reminisce about the day they met at a Youth for Christ rally fifty years ago. They march and sing: “I may never march in the universe but I’m in the Lord’s army” and wonder why Christians want their children to become soldiers of the Lord when Jesus was a pacifist.

    While waiting to be married, Billy “Boo Boo Bear” Wallace and Mikey “Yogi Bear” Parker reminisce about the day they met at a Youth for Christ rally fifty years ago. They march and sing: “I may never march in the universe but I’m in the Lord’s army” and wonder why Christians want their children to become soldiers of the Lord when Jesus was a pacifist. As their wedding nears, they remember their first four celibate years as students at the King's College, a Christian school with strict rules and penalties for everything from smoking to dancing to playing cards (let alone the practice of one man loving another). A moment before they’re scheduled to enter the sanctuary, however, “Boo” suffers a stroke and collapses. A year later, in Billy and Mikey’s apartment, after a second stroke, Billy's life depends on Mikey. “Life’s just a chance of choices, isn’t it? Just a chance we do the right thing. Snag the chance. Put all your choices on a piece of bread, smoosh them together and see the wonder that ensues. . . Life’s like that, isn’t it? A Wonder . . . just like the bread.” Mikey butters a piece of Wonder Bread, grabs a cow-shaped creamer and hurries to the man he loves and wonders who hurts more, Mikey from the strokes or him because he has to watch his lover suffer. As Mikey pours milk, Billy responds with “Moooooooo!” and Mikey sings “Moo River wider than the sky.” As difficult and tenuous as their lives have become, neither partner lets the other down until we learn that Billy has deliberately stopped taking his meds and, in order to make Mikey's life easier, dies. Another year passes, and, alone in the apartment, Mikey packs a picnic lunch with Billy’s favorite foods. Billy’s spirit remains nearby, however, trying to communicate. When Mikey becomes aware of his presence, he is enraged, “Why did you did you do this to me? Why did you kill yourself? I love you. I’ve always loved you.” As Billy’s spirit stands next to him, he tells Mikey something he’s not ready to hear: there is no heaven or hell or Jesus Christ, Anubis, Osiris, Thor or any of the other gods; they are merely manifestations of ourselves. “We live in eternity,” Boo says, “but from time to time, we come down to the garden. We eat, we fall in love and we have a moment to get away from the vastness of eternity. Living here in the garden gives us a perspective on eternity, without time here, we can’t comprehend the vastness of the universe.” At first, Mikey doesn’t believe him but within time, he understands: Death is really life and life is actually death. Now Mikey is ready to go to the other side with Billy as he explains that the men have been together since the beginning of time: they even wrote the songs they’ve been singing. “Remember our song?” Billy asks, as he takes Mikey’s hand and leads him off stage to life eternal with him. “Abide with me,” Mikey replies, “always abide with me.”

    In Act One, it’s Halloween and the castle on Bell Island is under attack—well, not really. It’s just an outlandishly dressed security system salesman pounding at the castle gates. Alan Baker, the grandson of the owner, answers and learns the stranger is not only a local deputy and owner of a banana plantation, but will also make a great foil for his nightly games. As he leaves, Alan warns the stranger about the crocodottles in the moat who will nibble his pants if they aren’t given bananas. Meanwhile, everyone is watching Revenge, for which his grandmother, Anita Baker, won her Oscar. Then they play the cork game as Milton Bradley catches a champagne cork in his teeth and drops dead. Alan’s mom, Nancy Baker, tries to revive him just as the security salesman, Michael Holdit, returns and unwittingly plays the part of deputy. Nancy sniffs the cork and announces that Milton Bradley was poisoned. Suzi O’Brien, freaks out looking at the body, so the rest drag the body to the cellar. Holdit interviews the remaining suspects and is convinced Nancy’s the murderer. She claims she was playing a game and Milton is alive behind the cellar door, but when she opens it, Milton Bradley hangs on the door with a knife in his chest. Bobby Sinclair then pole vaults over the castle walls, he’s the local sheriff but come, without bananas, to rescue everyone could only enter the castle by pole vaulting. The lights go out and when they come on, Milton’s body is gone and the floor is saturated with blood. In Act Two, everyone realizes the floor is covered in ketchup, not blood, and search for Milton, looking for chutes and ladders and hidden passages. Bobby discovers a Hollywood prop room, but frustrated because he can’t find the body, says, “Bodies just don’t fall out of the sky,” just as Michael falls out of the second floor window and lands in the moat. Everybody re-enters the game room through trap doors and hidden passages. Then Nancy opens the closet door and finds Milton Bradley—beaten to death with a wrench. As Holdit gets sick and exits, Suzi and Nancy stand next to the Midget Memorial, which honors the memory of the three Hungarian midgets who fell from their death while changing the castle’s lightbulbs, and play with one of the statues, which reminds them of Milton’s thang.. Holdit and Bobby decide to interrogate each person separately as Holdit takes everyone into the dining room and releases them one by one to Bobby. During the investigation, the suspects accidentally reveal things about themselves.

Then Bobby interviews Suzi and tells her he’s concerned about her because of her depression and her recent stay at the Hillary Clinton Mental Institution. Finally, Bobby gathers everyone together to announce the name of the murderer. He lassoes Holdit announcing that Holdit’s the murderer. Bobby explains that Milton covered up the real cause of the midgets’ deaths and Milton hired Holdit to exchange a slippery treadless ladder for a non-slippery ladder to make their murder look like an accident. In retaliation, Holdit killed Milton! Mrs. Baker disappears as Bobby breaks open the desk drawer and finds ketchup, making him realize that since Mrs. Baker had the only key, she left the ketchup in the drawer after murdering Milton. Mrs. Baker has begun the next game, Revenge, and starts quoting lines from her Academy Award performance. Mrs. Baker, brings in a machine gun—just as she did in the final act of the movie, Revenge.

The group announces that Life is a game! They tell Holdit he’s fresh meat and they wanted to play with him. Holdit is then welcomed, as Bobby proposes to Nancy and Milton proposes to Suzi. Then Michael proposes to Mrs. Baker. After the triple wedding, they play The Newlywed Game. Bobby kisses Nancy and Suzi kisses Milty. Michael then screams “Let the games begin!” as he shoves a cream pie in Holdit’s face saying Holdit has earned his just desserts. Curtain.
