Monologue Mania Day #1105 Cancelled by Janet S. Tiger (c) Feb. 21, 2017
                                                 (c) 2017   A monologue by
                                                    by Janet S. Tiger

           (Actor enters, drenched to the bone, looks around, knocks on the door)

Hello?  Hello?  Where is everybody?  It's pouring out here!  Come on!  I'm only five minutes late, you can't have started, this never starts on time!


Let me in!  I brought the damned refreshments! The first time in 20 years I bring refreshments!  So open the door!

         (Pounds, starting to get desperate)

 I had to drive thirty minutes in the pouring rain and the freeway was shut down because of fallen trees and I had to take a detour and if you idiots think this is funny, then you're bigger jackasses than I ever thought!  I hate you all and I quit this stupid club!

        (Hits door, then jumps back)

What the hell!  Who puts a nail on a door?  Wait a minute....what's this.....

       (Notices something on the ground, lifts a very wet paper, reads with difficulty)

Due to inclement weather and a police advisory, for the first time in 20 years, this meeting has been cancelled.

        (Turns to leave, stops looks back)

If that's the way it is....then this monologue is cancelled, too!

        (Exits to return another night)

In dubious honor of the first cancelled Scripteaser reading in history!
