It’s no secret that this is an especially productive time for the Wee Folk Players (They’re a Stitch), with every news cycle delivering a goody bag full of ready-made scripts to add to the American Drama Series.
Today’s episode taps into the winning combination of tragicomedy and the latest in spy technology and stars the besieged Great Fabricator’s team of loyal Apologists.
Being true the story, the prop crew acquired a new appliance for the set — a special microwave oven with surveillance capabilities. When asked to elaborate about the custom zapper, the red Apologist quipped, “I’m not inspector gadget!”
Can you spy an example of strategic product placement on the set?
An operative sat outside and patiently listened in for signs of intelligent life. His set of noise cancelling headphones were fashioned out of old cloth covered buttons.
When it became evident that a cut away set was required for the scene, the exterior wall got some spiffing up.
As of press time, the saga is unresolved and threatens to become an international incident. Will the Apologists continue to stand by their chronically unapologetic man? Please stay tuned.
