Pearl Cutts in “Houseplant for Hire”

When you are a famous and feathery actor, your work is ongoing.

For instance, when you are on location, you are immersed in playing your part.

And in between acting gigs, you are busy doing research for your next role.

Sometimes your research is so interesting it can even inspire your next creative project, such as with this latest one-avian play from world-renowned actor Pearl Cutts:

“Houseplant for Hire”

(The stage set includes just one hanging green houseplant. The star enters by jumping down from his window ledge into its leaves, evoking an audible intake of breath from the audience.)

So we meet at last. I must say - you look extraordinarily healthy for one of my large featherless assistant's houseplants.

So we meet at last. And I just have to say – you look extraordinarily healthy for one of my large featherless assistant’s houseplants.

Well, yes, I agree it must be your good DNA - and the fact that you are new around here probably doesn't hurt either.

Why, yes, you did hear correctly that my next play is a culinary feature. Speaking of which....

Why, yes, you did hear correctly that my next play takes a culinary focus. Speaking of which….

You weren't kidding - "a fine, delicate flavor" is exactly what you have here.

You weren’t kidding – “a fine, delicate flavor” is exactly what you have here.

(All of a sudden, rapid footsteps can be heard just outside the immediate stage setting. The actor’s focus shifts towards the entry way.)

What do you mean, "no sampling the houseplants? HE contacted ME, Mom!"

What do you mean, “no sampling the houseplants? HE contacted ME, Mom!” Said he was a “houseplant for hire” who could assist with my culinary research!

(As the actor is swiftly relocated back up to his window ledge by the individual addressed as “Mom,” he moves out of the audience’s view. An audible “ouch!” along with the words, “Pearl, no BITING!” can be heard as the curtain summarily snaps shut.)

The End.
