Modelogues, by Sarah Happel, is a fashionable farce of light and amusing characters that peeks into the sometimes unattractive industry of modeling. Models are self-centered, brainless twits, right? Well, duh. Who knew that having long legs and an ability to walk in stilettos could lead to a career. But, don’t knock the Sasquatch off her runway pedestal before first looking at who propped her up there.
_ Modelogues_ explores society’s views on beauty, fascination with fame, and the colorful cast of characters who make a living off the genetically well-endowed. We visit a huckster agent, a drugged-up roller skating designer, and a Models Anonymous group meeting. We also meet some lesser known industry players, who should hide before they’re institutionalized. Among them are a crazed backstage dresser, a gang of fanatical model groupies, and an Italian party-promoting pimp.
A comedy in two acts, Modelogues is comprised of several monologues and various short scenes. All the characters are played by a six person cast of three women and three men.
