Mike Says:

Muggled was written for my good friends The Hunger Artists for their 2004 Halloween production of Madame Guignol’s Macabre Theatre. Their goal was to create a Christian “Hellhouse”, so I added Harry Potter to their gallery of abortionists, fornicators, and other damned souls.

I wrote an Abu Ghraib-eseque digression that was not performed, but it is featured in the script. It definitely takes a lot of humor out of the play, but that might be a good thing.

But after the Hellhouse performance, is Muggled past its sell-by date? Who knows?
