Call Backed: 5 Thespians, 1 Director, 1 Stage Manager and 2 Understudies
With so many fellow Thespians against him, Goober's fate seemed doomed without hope -- which was precisely how his end came to be. There were no escape routes, no slight of hands or tricks, nor any prettily turned word left that could possibly save his life. As the final vote, the lingering words of the Producer, echoed off stage, one by one the stage lights dimmed to blackness before a single spotlight was left on the accused. A second later the spotlight turned red before the stage dropped into complete darkness; a high pitched male scream then sounded, sending chills down the spines (and an ache in the ears) of those on stage.
When the lights flared back to life, the Understudy Goober, to have played the role of Montague, was seen no more. The cast and crew had chosen wisely and could rest a little easier now that two of the fearsome Understudies were no more. But ... what of the third?
Danger still lurked and did so nearby.
