View all copies of this ISBN edition:

A short comedic play. Coalsmoke is fuming, and not in a pun on it's namesake. Mayor Metrohouse is in hot water, and it isn't from the heat. Coalsmoke is on the edge of revolution, and it is being felt in the mayor's office. Meet Metrohouse, his drunken wife the Lady Debauchee, and ingenious valet and butler, Valetine. Valetine, being the centerpiece of all good ideas for Metrohouse, who isn't the brightest diamond int the jewelry box, decides upon what must be done. In order to survive, to save his own head along with mayor Metrohouse and his wife, there must be murder. Who are they going to go after? The three city council members. Luckily enough, they are all coming in today for appointments. It is bound to be a deathly good time in this short dark comedy. Run Time: 20 minutes. CAST OF CHARACTERS - LORD METROHOUSE: The owner and mayor of Coalsmoke. A dandy. An airy, aristocratic voice that laughs often and takes pride in showing off with flourishes. VALETINE: Manservant and administrative assistant to Lord Methrohouse. Silent and emotionless other than the emotional range of his voice. LADY DEBAUCHEE: Wife to Lord Metrohouse. A drunkard that spends most of her time trying to get into local theatre circles and buying clothes. She is drunk consistently. MRS. FITZBURN: Council member, head of public utilities. A soulless character with little warmth. MRS. GUARDLOVE: Council member, head of public safety. Overly cautious and on edge constantly. MR. DEZINE: Council member, head of engineering. Has a loud woman-like scream. PROTESTORS: A mixed group of 5-30, may be any age, gender, or ethnicity.
