Cape Cod and Other Plays

by Don Nigro

This collection of five plays by Don Nigro includes Cape Cod, a long one act/short full length in which Ben and Tracy, the characters from Nigro’s Seascape With Sharks And Dancer, return in a work set between the second and third scenes of the earlier play, during the first weeks they spend together. Tracy is surprised to be happy with Ben, but restless and uneasy about their future, and makes a life changing decision with the help of a very eccentric friend who much resembles Edward Gorey; How To Tell A Devil, a chilling and darkly funny monologue about a compelling but possibly unhinged girl two intruders encounter in a haunted barn; Loneliness, in which Henry David Thoreau, Jack Kerouac and Gertrude Stein compete for the affections of Emily Dickinson; Goose Therapy, in which Mother Goose acts as a group therapist to try and resolve some of the emotional problems of a Dish, a Spoon, a Fiddle, a Cat, a Dog, a very athletic Cow, and the Moon; and Venice, a dark monologue in which a girl investigates the mysterious disappearance of another girl in Venice. Something for everybody here, in an abundance of strangeness, and a treasure trove of monologue material.
