Close Encounters of the Undead Kind

Close Encounters of the Undead Kind

by Jeffrey Harr

Wendy walks into a typical teen support group. Claire thinks Halloween is going to be humdrum as usual. Rachel wants her parents to be nice to her new boyfriend. Three ordinary scenarios… or are they? Is that a werewolf at the support group? A vampire at the door? A zombie boyfriend? With some close encounters of the undead kind, these plays are far from typical and humdrum!

With quick humour and fabulous characters this is not your ordinary collection. The plays can be performed individually or all together for a ghoulishly delightful evening.
