The best scary stories are the ones that are at least partly true…

(This isn’t one of those stories.)

Coming Spring 2017

I’ve got a brand new short comedy to share with you this spring in a super spooky collection from one of your favorite play publishers. Wacky and weird, it’s a fast paced adventure with the obscure horrors we’ve lost to history and a ton of silly fun for middle schools and up. As you’d expect from a play by me, there’s also plenty of room for improvisation, physical comedy and magic action, all with simple staging and room for a large cast to get everyone in on the fun.

Stay tuned for more information about where and when this play will be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you’re interested in a perusal copy for an advanced look, email me and I’ll hook you up.

The (Completely Inaccurate) Legend of the Mummy Witch House
by Hillary DePiano

Comedy
10-15 minutes
3 W, 2 M, 3 E
8 actors total (3-10+ W possible, 2-7+ M possible)

The Legend of the Mummy Witch is the perfect monster mash-up. A haunted house filled with ghouls, werewolves, zombies and more, it’s got everything you could possibly want in a ghost story. But is there any truth to it at all? When a group of urban explorers who love the tale set out to crack the mystery, they’re disappointed when what they discover doesn’t match their expectations. But as they bargain for their lives with a sorceress and her transforming tabby, demonic squirrel-imps and a stylish golem who literally can’t keep it together, they’re forced to consider a wild new idea: Might the real version actually be better?
