FARCE/WESTERN WITH SONG. It’s as dead as a June bug in January at the Wet Yer Whistle Saloon after the temperance ladies smashed all the bottles of Red Eye, confiscated the bullets, and burned the poker cards. With no customers, the saloon girls have resorted to playing Old Maid, knitting “sweaters,” reading dime novels, and counting tumbleweeds while they eagerly await the next stage coach’s arrival with a new batch of Red Eye. In the meantime, the girls hear tell that skin-drippin’ zombie gunslingers are headed to the saloon and if they don’t get their Red Eye, they will crack open the girls’ skulls like eggs and scoop out the innards! Not wantin’ their brains eaten, the girls find an empty bottle of Red Eye, add a little red nail polish for color, and fill it with the only alcohol they’ve got…perfume! When the zombies arrive and partake of this “sweet-smelling” elixir, the girls soon realize they “done created a monster out of a monster”! For a full evening, combine this play with Geff Moyer’s one-act western “It’s a Calamity, Jane!” Both plays use the same set.
