SCENE: Our characters (Al-Frankenstein, Doris-The lovely Monster, Frankie-The released prisoner) are still in the underground, sewer lair….There is a hot tub now. In it, our Doris and Frankie. The bubbles bounce as the two giggle and touch each other sexually.There is a champagne bottle in a ice bucket nearby. Yet, who acts as the butler, standing at the ready, towel over forearm….is, Al….
DORIS: “Some more Al.” (she holds up the champagne glass)
FRANKIE: “….Me too.”
SCENE: Al, is not cool with all this. His monster face shows he’s angry. Yet, he pours the champagne….As he mumbles something….
DORIS: “….What’s that?”
AL: “Nothing, nothing.”
DORIS: “Then, shut-up!”
FRANKIE: [Big grin] “….Hey, now sweetheart that’s no way to talk to him. After all, he’s here to please, aren’t you, Al old buddy.”
AL: “Oh yeah, here to please.” [Al stares hard at Frankie]
DORIS: [Starts to get up, she wears a sexy bathing suit] “Well, I’ll go get ready, after all the night is still young.” [And she gives a quick kiss to Frankie]
SCENE: Doris steps out of the hot tub. Al quickly brings here her robe. She wraps it around her, gives a cute wave goodbye to
Frankie….And she exits….Both Al and Frankie watch her go.
FRANKIE: “Ain’t she a peach, hey Al, my robe want to go get dressed up too you know.”
SCENE: Frankie begins to stand as Al brings up his robe. Yet, the upset Al, quickly drops the robe, comes up behind Frankie and begins to push him back into the water….Hoping to drown him….Frankie yells for help, calling for who else….”Doris!”….Enters, quickly Doris still in her robe.
DORIS: [Shouts] “Al, Al! Stop it! Stop it right now!
SCENE: She pushes Al away. After all, she has super strength, if not even more than Al….Al flies backwards!
DORIS: [Points her finger at Al] “That’s three times this week you tried to kill Frankie. One more attempt and I’m taking Frankie and we’re out of here, you hear me, just one more time! Then it’s you and the sewer rats, forever, you hear me, forever. We’ll go go go. There’s enough gold and jewels down here to keep us going for a very long time.”
FRANKIE: [Surprised, hearing of wealth] “….Gold and jewelry?”
SCENE: Doris and Al give Frankie a concerned stare….After all, the gold and jewelry are decades old secret.
DORIS: “That’s another matter Frankie.”
FRANKIE: “Oh, I meant nothing by it, just curious.”
AL: “He’ll rob you first chance he gets. Your lover boy.”
FRANKIE: [Stands, reaches down for the robe, steps out of the hot tub] “Hey, that’s a lie, why why would I rob my girl, my best beautiful girl.”
AL: “She’s your only girl you mean, damn jail bird, she’s the first one you met. You you, I should of killed you in the park.”
FRANKIE: [In robe] “You see Al, that’s all you know, kill kill kill. When you gonna find the finer things in life.” [Frankie takes up the bottle of champagne and drinks....Then reaches for Doris and kisses her]
AL: [Sneers] “….Aah, geez!”
DORIS: “….Now you run along and get dressed Frankie, I feel like dancing tonight.” [She dances around a bit]
FRANKIE: “Okay my love, be right back.” [And he kisses her hand and exits, still swigging on the champagne bottle]
SCENE: Doris and Al….watch him go. Then, stare at each other….As if they are the first couple, and, the very last couple on earth….
AL: “You know, he’s using you, now he knows about the loot. He’ll try to search for it when we’re not around. If he finds it he’ll rob us, rob you and take off.”
DORIS: [in deep thought] “….Then he’ll die.”
AL: [Perks up] ….”Die?!”
DORIS: “Yes, I’ll hunt him down, take his life, nothing new to me or for you for that matter….”
AL: [Cuts her off] “Then let me kill him now, why….”
DORIS: [snaps at Al] “No! I want to live for a while, live up above.” [she points up] “For as long as I can. After all, there were lovers I had before, remember Al? Many many lovers, we’re hundreds of years old. No, I need a life, a woman’s kind of life….
Desire, beautiful clothes, theater, to dine to dance and a warm man. A living warm man.”
AL: “Yes, I am cold from head to toe. That is how the creator made me.”
DORIS: “Yes, our creator made us different. You the beast, the cold one. Yet, I once my women’s mind becomes as a living female, I, have the heat within me. The warmth so stays as if a small sun is above my forever beating heart. Giving the beat of love.
AL: “Yes, I am the unloved, you, the loved.”
SCENE: The two creatures that have known each other forever….Again stare into each other….Moments pass….
DORIS: “I’ll go dress now.”
SCENE: She exits….leaving Al all alone….He’s quiet some moments….Then moves forward stare out….And begins to sing.
“No one knows of my life
For I am the one created to be the loneliest
In this loneliness, I rage and roar
I make the blood flow upon life’s floor
“The years join till the end of time
For me never a poem to rhyme
No, just caves and alleys where I cry
Tears as cold as I
“No one knows of my life for I am the one created under a stormy sky
Not a kiss at night, not a kiss come dawn
Only a bed of stone, covers of straw
No food can I eat, no sweet drink
Just wanting and wanting as you all can see
Sorrow is very bit of me
“Yes, in this loneliness, I rage and roar
I make the blood flow upon life’s floor
Tomorrow I think I’ll kneel and say
Pray a prayer for any care that comes my way”
SCENE: As Al finishes his song….Enters, from left ,Doris, dressed in a beautiful silver-studded, white evening gown….Enters, from the right, Frankie, in a tuxedo….Al, backs up giving them space….The two of-late lovers….Look, hunger for each other!…. And, quickly come in each others arms.
DORIS: “Shall we depart darling?”
FRANKIE: [Taking up her arm to escort ] “But of course, my everything.”
SCENE: ….So, the dashing couple exit from the sewer, underground lair for a night out on the town. Leaving the monster, poor Al, to his lonesome.
AL: “Aah, geez… If they can dance…. so can I!”
SCENE; And, some lively music strikes up…. And, poor Al….begins to dance….. a little slow and off ward at first ….As he dances, two large, female Rodents, very sexy…… Enter….. joining in Al’s dancing [ after all, it is the sewer ]…. But, now it seems that with the added dancers, Al, come to… Life! And, he and the sexy rodents…. Really get down marvelously !
