Uneaten Cantaloupe • A Play

by Mahonri Stewart

(Under license from Prospero Arts and Media)

Siblings, Oscar and Joan Godfrey are returning from their father’s funeral when they get caught in a snowstorm in Wyoming. Finding shelter in what they thought to be a strange hotel. They find that there is no way out and are trapped in place as strange, confusing, and wacky as its inhabitants, characters like Alien Bob, Kevin the Love Slave, Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern, the vivacious and insane Roxy, and the brothers Everyman, Anyman, and Noman. Where are they really, what does it all mean, and what is the secret power of produce?
