Thanks Emergency Surgery & Airport Lounge!

monoscene 7 Thanks everyone for a great final show of our Monoscene run with The Placeholders last Thursday night at Cville Coffee!

The Placeholders started out with a form called a harold, based on an audience suggestion of ‘Pool Noodle,’ and exploring scenes about a hipster-mac-and-cheese restaurant diving into radio advertising, a boyfriend first meeting his girlfriend’s Icelandic mother, and two friends, one of whom often mispronounces restaurant items.

The first monoscene was based the suggestion “Emergency Surgery” and featured a hot doctor who was the face of the franchise and another doctor who did all the work, plus nurses, a receptionist, and a family who struggles with steak knives.

The second monoscene came from the audience suggestion of “Airport Lounge,” as the Placeholders layered up overheard conversations, security breaches, and a couple who never quite get off the ground!

Finally, the Placeholders finished up the show with a montage off multiple audience suggestions of “Blue Light,” “Jaws,” and “Daddy One/Won.” We met a giant anaconda that had been in an accident, a couple living in a basement, and the Ambiguous Accent Advertising Agency.
