2 Females 2Males
(1 male to play 3 roles)
Arabella and Richelle, long term friends and drinking buddies have a standing date for Friday nights. On this particular Friday night, however, things go awry and they are left to deal with a rather cute demon who won’t go back to …. wherever he came from … until he has a contracted soul. With time running out, the girls embark on a crazy scheme to catch a soul. But there are a few complications, not the least of which includes Arabella’s ex-husband and a devil with a liking for romance and dance.

Richelle - So, (sarcastically) are you saying you are a demon or something?
Morax - (proudly) Of course I am a demon.
Arabella - Prove it.
Morax - Prove it?
Arabella - Yeah. Why should we believe you?
Morax - I have never been asked to prove myself.
Richelle - Welcome to our world.
Morax - What do you expect me to do?
Arabella - Surprise us. Nothing destructive. Nobody gets hurt.
Morax - (looking confused) I suppose … (he flicks a finger and music thunders through, deafening the women)
Arabella - (yelling) turn it off!
(Morax makes a gesture and the music stops abruptly.)
Richelle - Morax, huh? (thinks) If you are a demon, how come I haven’t heard of you? Which rock have you been living on?
Morax - Pardon?
Richelle - If you are a crash hot demon, how come we have never heard of you? Maybe your dark lord isn’t so hot.
Morax - He isn’t my dark lord, he is The Dark Lord.
Arabella - I think that is pretty arrogant. Saying he is “the” dark lord. I don’t remember voting.
Morax - What?
Richelle - Yeah, who died and made him “The Dark Lord”?
Morax - He … just is!
Arabella - Bloody typical.
Richelle - Just “Hello! I think I’ll be the Dark Lord” and no-one gets a say. Just who we might want for the Dark Lord doesn’t matter.
Arabella - So pisses me off at times, the way men just take what they want. And I bet he wasn’t the best candidate for the job. It’s always the same. How come he isn’t a Dark … what would be the female equivalent for Lord?
Richelle - Lady?
Arabella - “The Dark Lady”? Sounds a bit pissy.
Richelle - Sounds like Condoleeza Rice.
Arabella - Or a bodice ripper novel.
Morax - The dark force must be male. Just as the light force is female.
Arabella - Male destructive, female creative? Oooh that’s better. I like that.
