Six Monsters: A Seven Monster Play

A performer in a poorly made skeleton costume stands on a ladder, drinking cough syrup from the bottle. Each person in the audience is an invited guest; the next door neighbor, the land-lord, the mean boss, disappointing boyfriends, former gym teachers, various dead people and one giant sloth. The skeleton has brought them together to introduce them to her personal monsters. Enter the monsters. Spoilers: the majority of the audience survives.
