The stage is empty.

You sit comfortably before it, waiting expectantly for the actors to take their places.

Are you watching this alone? With friends? Maybe with complete strangers?

That is your choice.

Onto the stage walks a young person.

You think 'person', because their appearance does not dictate one way or the other. Even when they speak, you cannot tell.

"Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to this play. I am the Capicomico, a struggling artisté and student of literature, but it has fallen upon my humble person to explain to you the finer points of this play, for it is complex and requires much thought."

The Capicomico smiles at you.

"So, ladies and gentlemen, are you ready ? If so, let me introduce you to the cast and chorus, who shall open the play. Thank you!"

Exit Capicomico

Enter cast and chorus.
