Monologue Mania Day #  1721 The Queens' Party (opening scene) by Janet S. Tiger (c) Nov. 2,  2018        

                                        The Queens' Party  
                                                     (opening scene)
                           A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved

              (A younger man comes onstage, dressed as the dealer, complete with a visor, vest, long sleeved shirt.....and a beautiful skirt with high heels.  This is Horatio, our tour guide and hostess for the queens' party.  He looks at the audience, giving an approving whistle.  He has a Southern accent, which he uses well and puts on strong when he needs.)

 Well, hello, honey!  Aren'choo the good lookin' one!  And you look a heap better than on that movie screen!  My, my, my!  My Mama told me there'd be days like this, but luckily tonight just could be your night!  Don't be shy!  Come on in!

             (He waves his hand, indicating the chairs and tables)

Sit wherever you like, all these tables will be full in a few minutes.  Please don't worry, I like when guests come early!  It gives me a chance to get to know you......which is always nice.....and I can give you a little background about this party.

I understand you were invited by the Queen himself, so if you want, you may be seated at his table, over there, the one closest to the bar, of course.  

This party has been goin' on for a long time, the Queen was but a mere boy when he first started gracing these tables -  back durin' the Depression, when money was scarce and closets held more than clothing.

Would you like somethin to drink?  You seem...thirsty.  How about a Special?  That's everyone's favorite, and no one knows what's in it, not even me, and I have been here over 20 years!

 Don't worry, it's somethin' very alcoholic.  And very tasty.  The caterers are bringin some Chinese tonight.....and sandwiches to eat!

         (Looks disappointed)

You don't like to joke around much, do you?  (Watches carefully)

Or are you still nervous about bein' here....that someone might see you.....know that your image onscreen and offscreen are not in a straight line.....well don't you worry your pretty little head over that either.   You can say and do whatever you want within these walls.  No one dares to out anyone here, what goes on is very private, what is said is not to be repeated, and closet doors are still locked tight.

        (Listens, laughs)

Well, yes, one time someone was foolish enough to break these unwritten laws, and the result, well, (very dark)  the result was not pretty......

         (He turns to leave, looks back)

Perhaps, after you've had a drink or two...or ten....I'll share that story with you.......

          (He exits.  Blackout)
