A soft spoken man wanders into a pet shop to buy an owl. The poor guy is ignored and bullied by the receptionist, then subjected to the outrageous sales pitch by the peculiar Dr. Hollyhock, who tries to persuade Ben that owls are only a popular superstition. As his frustration grows, Ben slowly turns into an owl and settles accounts with Hollyhock in a funny and frightening finale. Anyone who has ever suffered from high handed secretaries and mindless high pressure salesmen will delight in this wild, witty and unusual comedy. Ben's gradual transformation into an owl is a rich opportunity for any actor.

CHORUS SIZE

No Chorus

BENJAMIN L. FRANKLIN - 30, a slight, soft-spoken man who looks as if he should be an accountant, which he is not. He wears a brown business suit and large round yellowish glasses. He carries a rolled umbrella and brief case.

MISS DROSS - 39, a fat and overbearing woman. She wears a perpetual scowl and a nurse's uniform. Dross incorporates the warmth of a punched computer card with the cordiality of a dyspeptic bulldog.

DR. HOLLYHOCK - 50, a talkative, fussy busybody of a man in a white medical jacket. He wears a head mirror and carries a stethoscope around his neck.
