This monologue from a harmlessly comic misanthrope covers frogs, peanut butter, public transportation, and where she buries the bodies.
From very still & hard to see, a collection of short plays by the acclaimed playwright Steve Yockey – a magical, funny, and occasionally surreal creation that will take you on an exhilarating, visceral journey.
This second collection of short plays from Steve Yockey mixes comedic absurdity with raw heartbreak to unearth worlds populated by desperate people, mythical characters, faceless corporate masters, and at least one Slasher flick heroine. The second half of the collection is comprised of the work very still & hard to see. This short play cycle recounts the history of a cursed hotel and the unfortunate guests who stay there. From riding in an erratic elevator and dealing with possessive ghosts to managing an ever-expanding hole in the floor armed only with gleaning supplies, these encounters with the unkown chillingly collapse the distance between the real and the surreal and remind us that, sometimes, bad things do happen for a reason.
