Musical Sketch- Phantom Ex Boyfriend
Updated: Jul 1, 2022
The Phantom Ex Boyfriend by Alison Bartow
Chris, Woman feeling lonely and aroused during quarantine, unsure of what to do about texting her ex
Phantom, A physical manifestation of Chris’ memory of her ex, very persistent and a little dramatic
Chorus of Phantoms, three other exes
Setting: A bedroom, Chris is sitting up in bed in a robe holding her phone.
(The music to the song “Phantom of the Opera” starts as a fog starts to roll across the stage.)
At night he texts with me
“JUST CHECKING IN”
An emoji winks at me, asks how I’ve been
And do I reply to him while I’m alone
The Phantom of the ex boyfriend is there
Inside my phone
(A man dressed in cargo shorts and a backwards visor enters upstage wearing a half mask and silk cape a spotlight on him, he is the phantom)
