The Big Bad Wolf

Monologue by D. M. Larson





WOLF
I know exactly what you mean. People misconwhattionize me all the time.


Man, you accidentally knock down some pig's house with a sneeze and they start telling stories about you. And now there's this little girl and her red hood. Who knows what they'll say about this one.


I have self-a-team issues too.


Everyone is always going around saying "what a big nose you have" and "what big teeth you have." It hurts.


I just want to go away some place where I won't bother anyone.


They're always promising happy endings but where's my happy ending? All that happily ever after seems to be reserved for princesses and cute little animals. Especially bunnies. Why are rabbits always getting happy endings?


They're rodents, I tell you. Rodents!

HOLKA POLKA!

by D. M. Larson

SHORT SELECTION FROM THE SCRIPT

 

BRENDA

Wait. How do I get to the Prince's castle?

 

HILDA

You can fly, teleport.

 

BRENDA

Actually, I'd prefer to walk.

 

HILDA

Walk?

 

BRENDA

Well, broom power is creating all kinds of pollution in the skies!

 

HILDA

We wouldn't have the colorful sunsets without pollution, my dear.

 

BRENDA

And teleporting could scare someone. I wouldn't want to appear in people's gardens and scare them.

 

HILDA

No, I suppose you wouldn't.

 

BRENDA

So if you could point the way by foot.

 

HILDA

Fine, just follow the brown brick road.

 

BRENDA

Follow the brown brick road?

 

                        (A bunch of little GNOMES do a can-can as the enter singing)

 

GNOMES

"Follow the brown brick road. Follow the brown brick road. Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the brown brick road."

 

HILDA

Oh, quiet you crazy Gnomes. Get out of here.

 

                        (HILDA throws one of her shoes at them and they scramble off stage)

 

BRENDA

But they were so cute.

 

GNOMES (off)

Thanks!

 

HILDA

Watch out for them. They're pests.

 

                        (GNOMES rush in)

 

GNOMES

We know you are but what are we.

 

HILDA

Excuse my while I go turn some gnomes to stone and stick them in somebody's yard.

 

GNOMES

Eeek!

 

                        (GNOMES run off as HILDA chases them)

 

BRENDA

Poor little guys. They don't look like pests at all. Okay, now she told me the way. So I just need to...

 

                        (GNOMES rush in)

 

GNOMES

"Follow the brown brick road. Follow the brown brick road. Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the brown brick road."

 

(HILDA rushes in and GNOMES run off with her exiting behind. BRENDA starts skipping along)

 

BRENDA

Follow the brown brick road. Follow the brown brick road.

 

GNOMES (off)

"Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the brown brick road."

 

HILDA (off)

Stop that!

 

(BRENDA skips along humming and then a WOLF appears. WOLF is dabbing his mouth with a small red cloak)

 

BRENDA

Oh, hello, there.


                        (WOLF hides red cloak behind his back)

 

WOLF

Oh!

 

BRENDA

Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you.

 

WOLF

Little girls do that to me.

 

BRENDA

Little girls scare you?

 

WOLF

All the time.

 

BRENDA

Why is that?

 

WOLF

It's all that screaming. Little girls scream too much.

 

BRENDA

I won't.

 

WOLF

You sure? I am scary.

                        (Makes scary arm motion)

Grrr.

 

BRENDA

That wasn't too scary.

 

WOLF

The last little girl thought so. Scared her so bad she dropped this.

 

                        (Holds out red cloak)

 

BRENDA

Poor thing. I bet she will get cold without it.

 

WOLF

I didn't think of that. But she ran so fast I doubt we'll catch her.

 

BRENDA

Maybe this is the time to try a little magic.

 

WOLF

Magic? You a fairy?

 

BRENDA

I'm a witch actually.

 

WOLF

A witch? But you're not ugly.

 

BRENDA

Not all witches are ugly. That's a common misconception.

 

WOLF

Miscon-what?

 

BRENDA

Misconception. It means people believe one thing about you but it's not true.

 

WOLF

I know exactly what you mean. People misconwhattionize me all the time. Man, you accidentally knock down some pig's house with a sneeze and that start telling stories about you. And now there's this little girl and her red hood. Who knows what they'll say about this one.

 

BRENDA

Wolves and witches have it tough.

 

WOLF

That they do.

 

BRENDA

But maybe I can do a little damage control. Set down the cloak and stand back.

 

                        (WOLF puts down red cloak and backs away)

 

WOLF

What you going to do?

 

BRENDA

I'm going to do a return to owner spell.

                        (BRENDA does a little dance. Polka music plays)

Holka Polka!

 

                        (Lights flash and zap is heard. Blackout)

 

WOLF

Ah! I'm blind!

 

BRENDA

Either I am too or something happened.

 

WOLF

Maybe you returned the moon. I wonder who the owner was?
