A Short Play by Greg Freier
1W / 1M
Approximate Playing Time: 10 minutes

Welcome once again to Greg Freier’s incredibly zany world.  Harold and Emma get a call that one of their sons has been killed.  How?  No matter.  It’s more of an issue how to paint Thompkins, child number three, out of their recently painted family portrait.  After all Thompkins is holding the dog.  Upon further examination, Harold and Emma decide they really aren’t fond of any of their seven children and it will just be easier to paint all of them out of the portrait.  And the dog?  Well, they can paint a table under him so he’s not just hovering in the air—especially after they receive a second call that another son is killed.  And then, of course, there is the incessant howling of the wolverines out back and several missing illegal groundskeepers. And when the phone rings again… $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $10 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
