About the Play:

The volume Unwrap Your Candy: An Evening of One-Act Plays contains a collection of 4 short plays by Doug Wright. Alternately chilling and hilarious, this deliciously macabre collection is a delectable evening of bedtime tales for adults guaranteed to keep you awake for nights on end.

Inspired in equal parts by Alfred Hitchcock, Roald Dahl and The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Unwrap Your Candy boasts a versatile cast of five and minimal production requirements. Together, the plays examine the danger of being a child, the terror of being an adult and even the perils of being an unsuspecting audience member. Spine-tinglers for the twenty-first century, the collected one acts in Unwrap Your Candy are guaranteed to jolt the senses and stimulate the mind.

In the title play, Unwrap Your Candy, five actors portray actual members of the theatre audience and prove far more intriguing than the play they've come to watch. (Cast: 2 female, 3 male)

In Lot 13: The Bone Violin, a stunning young violin prodigy skyrockets to international prominence, only to meet a shocking and supernatural fate. (Cast: 2 female, 3 male)

In Wildwood Park, a neurotic real-estate agent shows a house filled with unspeakable secrets to a potential buyer who harbors an almost insatiable thirst for tabloid atrocities. (Cast: 1 female, 1 male)

And in Baby Talk, a woman is unwound when her precocious baby begins to speak early while still inside her womb. (Cast: 1 female, 3 male)
