Day 35: The Case of the Missing Hard-Boiled Egg

In past months, Love & Feathers has been honored to win exclusive rights to a series of acting “shorts” – one-act plays featuring a feathery-star-in-the-making.

Rarely does an actor debut to such instant acclaim and awards!

One recent review read, “our feathery hero proves he deserves to be counted among the all-time acting greats.”

Here, in his latest one-avian show, Pearl Cutts continues the tradition of his own acting mentors (James Bond and Sherlock Holmes, of course) with:

“The Case of the Missing Hard-Boiled Egg”

(All at once, the feathery star emerges – to thunderous fan applause and popping flashbulbs – onto a stark white stage containing only a single prop.)

Well, well. I can see why the FBI called me.

They were lucky I was available - there appears to have been a theft of grand proportions!

Yes, yes - a most heinous crime has been committed here today.

We'll need to open a new case file immediately - we can call this one "The Case of the Missing Hard-Boiled Egg!" (announced in hushed tones to a spellbound audience).

Mom? Did you hear that? A C.A.S.E. F.I.L.E. We need a case file. Use one of those thick crunchy two-sided paper things for it, ok?

Hmmmm. Well this is a shame. I really enjoy hard-boiled eggs. A hard-working detective needs a good snack to keep his energy up (here, a collective sigh of sympathy wells up from the riveted audience).

(Loud crunching.) Although I have to say, this outer part isn't half bad!

Here, the famous actor sends his large featherless assistant the universal sign for "snack break."
