When you are a famous and feathery actor (even one who has received that rarest of accolades, the Golden Waffle Award), deciding how often to release new works is all about strategizing.

Too often, and fans may begin to take your talent for granted.

Not often enough, and you risk being overshadowed by lesser (and usually featherless) actors.

Finding that perfect balance is what sets the best apart from the rest.

You will know when you have found the right balance when fans buy out your shows, turn up in droves, faint and cry and beg for autographs.

Speaking of which…..

Love & Feathers is proud to present noted actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:

“The Invisible Muffin Eater”

Stagehand’s note: Stage lighting is very low as the play begins.

As the curtain opens, a lone muffin sits unguarded and uneaten on the stark stage.

Suddenly, from out of nowhere, there is just the faintest rustle of movement! (pause for audience gasp of suspense)

At first, the movement appears to be coming from a grey ghost. But then, there is a sudden flash of white!

(Stage lights suddenly come up!) The being is revealed as the stuff of legend - the Invisible Muffin Eater himself - in the feathers!

The Muffin Eater snatches nearly-invisible fragments of muffin with each quick bite he takes.

Then, as if receiving a message from the muffin itself, he suddenly draws back, listening intently to a sound only he can hear.

Stagehand’s note: Stage lights are once again lowered starting with this scene.

As quickly as he came, the Invisible Muffin Eater vanishes back into the dim evening light.

Onlookers quickly begin to wonder, did I just dream it? Was the Invisible Muffin Eater ever really here?

At once it is as if he was never here at all. The muffin sits alone, unguarded and uneaten, as the sun begins to rise.

The End.
