(Lights up on a living room. A middle-aged couple is having drinks with a young couple. The young woman is pregnant.)
Get me another drink, Martha.
Get it yourself, George. Wouldn’t hurt you to try to burn some calories.
I’ll get it.
Sit down, you pathetic twerp.
Please don’t argue.
Dear, we haven’t even begun to argue.
Virginia is a little sensitive.
GEORGE (looking out window)
Look at that moon. It’s big.
Only eclipsed by the size of your ego, George.
VIRGINA (drops her drink)
Now, you’ve done it.
I’ll call a doctor.
Just stay back!
(They all stay back as Virginia quite dramatically and violently turns into a werewolf. Virginia is snarling and looks like she’s about to attack any one of them. We hear classic scary music, possibly a Theremin. Virginia howls.)
Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia the Wolf?. You are cordially invited to George and Martha’s for an evening of fun and games.
(Virginia, as a wolf, sitting and drinking her cocktail like a dog laps up water. Ted tries to take her drink and she growls at him.)
Drop in for drinks and brace yourself.
