Listen To Me & Really Angry Werewolf
“Listen To Me” is a stage play. It is a satire of a radio show on disability issues, with the host, guests and phone calls. The play is about, in part, how we don’t listen to people who have disabilities.
“Really Angry Werewolf” is a film script (though not in the proper industry formatting, I have learned that!) It is the story of a man whose anger has alienated his wife, daughter and colleagues. He develops a serum to create a physical manifestation of his anger, so he can tame and control it. However, he transforms into the monster his anger his, and he looks like a werewolf. The film script is an experimental satire. It begins with the last scene—the ‘werewolf’ being killed—and ends with that scene (in a different context.) It has jokes! It is played for laughs, although at its core it is a tragedy.
