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.                      

(hyena laughs)

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. 

(hyena laughs)

His pilot was Colonel Looseleaf Harper, who dropped the bomb on Nagasaki.

(hyena laughs)

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.
