COMEDY. Set in a tacky funeral parlor on the highway outside New
Orleans a murdered beauty taunts the audience, exposes her bare
unshrouded back, and explains why she was murdered. Other imaginary
characters--her husband and daughter add an eerie quality to her
CAST OF CHARACTERS: (1W)
CLAUDIA: She is a beautiful woman of uncertain age, pale-faced with
long blonde hair. Her voluptuous figure is sheathed in moonbeam silk.
A wispy chiffon scarf floats free in the breeze which blows from
The interior of a Spanish-type mortuary on Veterans Highway outside
New Orleans , the type with fake brick, too much wrought iron, and
lanterns with amber glass or possibly glass in several colors.
Tackiness is felt in the details: an overdone sign-in table, metal
folding chairs, a pressed wood end table with Kleenex and plastic
roses, and a coffin.
