Issue 4, Summer 2021 Stage & Screen
Steve Loiaconi | Caged
ED: a 20-something struggling actor and hopeless romantic.
MARY: Ed’s ex-girlfriend and current roommate. It’s awkward.
ROY: a 30-year-old cryptozoologist who is either very good or very bad at his job and it’s not entirely clear which.
KAPPA: spokes-creature for a fast food chain. Heard, but never seen on stage.
SET: a cramped New York apartment divided into three sections: a bedroom, a living room, and a fire escape. The bedroom has a closet door and a woman’s bed covered with stuffed animals. The living room has a couch, the front door, a coat rack, a doorway to an unseen kitchen, and a window leading to the fire escape covered by a security grate.
A cage rattles in the darkness. Lights come up on the bedroom.
