WOMAN HOLLERING CREEK - Airports Are So Impossible These Days - Mrs. Razzaster

Author Rita Anderson
Austin, Texas

PLAY DESCRIPTION

WOMAN HOLLERING CREEK is set in the fictional town of Dark Cloud, Texas, at the DRESSY BBQ FISH TACOS, a restaurant, dress, and bait-and-tackle shop that also offers fishing and hunting tours, as well as massages. DRESSY BBQ FISH TACOS is doing a booming business since the ghost town hopes to get into the Book of World Records for their Largest Ball of Dental Floss. The shop is like an old-fashioned General Store on steroids. It prides itself in finding you whatever you need, and they dabble in just about everything. But, when a “stranger” comes to town and promises to make them all rich, we learn that no one is who they claim to be in Dark Cloud and everyone has a secret.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: MRS. RAZZASTER, a wealthy woman from (the fictional town of) Dark Cloud, Texas, has just returned from an unsuccessful trip to the airport to pick up her son, GINO, and she is such a mess that she looks like she's just been hit by a tornado. She doesn't drive much and she's a techno-phobe. She relays her grand mis-adventure with the airport.

Subject Matter: Airports, Children, Driving, Toilets, Truck Drivers, Highways, Rain, Spanx, Frustration, Cars

Note from Playwright: MRS. RAZZASTER rhymes with “disaster.”

Supplemental Information: WOMAN HOLLERING CREEK, a serious comedy with a farcical flair, takes its name from the creek that runs through San Antonio, and the script was inspired by the legend of La Llorona, the “weeping woman.”
