PENELOPE How do you do. My name is Penelope Ryan. This is a simple-minded play about men who enjoy killing–and those who don’t.
My husband, who kills so much, has been missing for eight years. He disappeared in a light plane over the Amazon Rain Forest, where he hoped to find diamonds as big as cantaloupes.
His pilot was Colonel Looseleaf Harper, who dropped the bomb on Nagasaki.
I should explain the doorbells in this apartment. The back doorbell is a hyena, Which you’ve just heard. The front doorbell is a lion’s roar.
