The Monsterhouse

Performed at the Criterion New Writers showcase in November 2018. The Monsterhouse, concerns the time before the Standard Drop, when death by hanging was torturously slow and humiliating.  Walter, a scientist, seeks to end the pain and find a humane way to end lives.  But his experiment is of interest to more than himself, and puts the people he wants to protect at risk.  Not everyone has his sympathy for freaks like the Irish Giant and the Hottentot Venus.
