Maybe She's Born With It

One-act satire for solo bouffon

Maxi, a creature from another planet, has been observing women and she thinks they are fascinating. She is mesmerized by their obsession with their bodies: how they mold them into different shapes, paint them assorted colors and put them on display. It all looks like a rollicking good time and she has arrived ready to play. What starts as fun and games soon leads Maxi to unearth something darker: a mysterious force threatening to destroy all of womanhood. Will she manifest this beast and welcome it into her world? Or will she clobber it with her red-bottomed pump?
