True Playwright Confessions
Mac’s play by itself is a twisted mindgame. One of the secretaries says something so brazen so matter-of-factly that it turns the other’s worldview (or at least office-view) upside down.
But in my mind, I can’t help but hear Mac’s pivotal lines spoken not by the secretary, but in the voice of Casey Kasem.
Casey Kasem Well let me ask you this: given the outfit that you’re wearing, how difficult would it be for him to get some of his fingers into your snatch?
Monica I’m sorry, did you—
Casey Kasem … Specifically, with those clothes you have on, how difficult would it be for him to get two or three of his fingers into your nasty snatch?
How did I mentally cast Casey Kasem? Perhaps there’s something inviting about a reassuring radio voice dropping vulgarities? Or that he gets to count digits from two all the way up to number three? I don’t know.
So now that my confession has ruined You Look Really Hot for everyone, go see Mac’s current play, Hail Satan!
