This collection of nine funny, dark, strange short plays contains Curse Of The Wolf Man, in which the actors in a famous werewolf movie of 1941 have lunch and struggle through the personal nightmares of their troubled star; Blavatsky, a monologue in which the famous earthy and uproariously funny spiritualist con woman tells us how she achieved international fame by having conversations with the dead; Front Porch, in which President William McKinley receives an unexpected and increasingly alarming guest; The Sheep Of Anzi, a monologue in which Anna Palestrina tells her grandson Ben an uproarious Italian tall tale about greed and sheep; Verona, in which a gifted actress in a small town production of Romeo And Juliet becomes the obsession of both her older director and a dangerous boy who lives at the dump; In The Forest Of Gone, in which two sisters try to come to terms with their abandonment by their troubled mother; Hallucination, in which an old woman starts seeing imaginary cows in the middle of the road; Grand Central Station, in which a strange girl meets an older man under the clock at Grand Central and appears to know disturbing things about him; and Apologia, a monologue in which a politician calls a press conference to apologize for an offense which is not exactly clear, and then gets a bit carried away. A little bit of strangeness for everybody.
