Summary:
Some guys are leaders, some guys are joiners, some guys are Stray Cats. This collection of musically-influenced monologues portrays nine "cats" as they hit bottom, paint themselves into a corner, or reach a moment of transcendence.

ALONE, BUT NOT LONELY: Tom "shares" at a twelve-step support group on Valentine's day.

THE POEM WRITER, who after having a little too much to drink, delivers a bitter, funny, self-loathing, self-aggrandizing speech to the Poem Writers Guild.

AN LA AGENT TALKS ABOUT LOVE, or more accurately about power and abandoment-love Hollywood-style.

GOOD-BYE, JACK: A kid works the drive-thru window at Jack-in-the-Box. The night they take the clown away he realizes he's "just another little drive-thru guy in orange and brown, alone on the graveyard shift."

JOCKO THE CLOWN, backstage in a moment of crisis, suffers from extreme "mime block."

OL' GATOR is an aging TV weatherman who has been kicked off the air for politically-incorrect statements. His farewell apology skids into a near breakdown.

DIARY OF A VOYEUR chronicles a writer, who instead of meeting his deadlines, spends months obsessing and writing about a couple in a window across his courtyard.

THE NIGHT ALI LOST: A life-long men's room attendant at the Roseland Ballroom relates with grace his point of view of the Big Band era, racism and bodily functions.

JAGUAR JESUS: A young man listens to a street saxophone player. The two trade riffs, each "stroking the night, blazing out of control."  Read more...
