Transcript – Live Show: The Council of Evil

RECORDED ANNOUNCEMENT

[“Train Jam” is played]

JEFF VAN DREASON
Uh, hey everyone! I just wanted to give you a warning that this mini-episode is going to sound very different from most of the other mini-sodes we’ve released, if not all content we’ve ever released. And that’s because it’s a recording of a live show we did via Zoom without any microphones. We’re just putting up the Zoom recording, which, no offense Zoom, but, it doesn’t sound, you know, the best, and we – we didn’t want to add the additional stress of having to record all the actors and the musicians um with microphones while we were kinda setting up this episode. So we just kinda left it in Zoom’s hands, knowing we would release it in the feed with this announcement so that people wouldn’t be like, “Hey, why did Greater Boston’s sound quality go down so much?”

Thank you to everyone who could attend that live event, it was a lot of fun. Um, and if you’re interested in seeing it, or uhh, listening to some of the QandA that took place after this mini-episode, think about joining our Patreon. In the meantime, enjoy ‘Council of Evil,” and we hope we’ll be back with more content for you soon. Thanks. Take care.

CHUCK OCTAGON – Jeff Van Dreason

Welcome back to The Underground in Red Line with Chuck Octagon. I’m Chuck Octagon. Next up, we turn once again to the developing story of the abrupt roboti…robotitizi..rob… robotize…! Roboticization–that is a very hard word to say–of Red Line train operation, which left hundreds of city employees out in the cold, to the dismay of many Red Line citizens. But what has the city gained through this dubious modernization? To answer that question, we take you now to Nichole Fonzerelli, reporting live from Park Street Station. Nichole?

VINCENZO

AGE: 18

GENDER: Male

RACE: White or mixed race

NATIONALITY: American

Vincenzo is a young man living on his own for the first time. He has a somewhat oblivious nature, distractible and easily confused. Yet still capable of working through an effectively sly plan when he puts his mind to it.

SIDES

ARNOLD

Ah, Vincenzo. I think we’ve met, haven’t we? At the office. It’s a lucky thing that you’re here, as I have a letter for George.

VINCENZO

Yeah. I mean…not anymore. That was just a short-term gig while I figure some things out. I mean, I could take him that letter if you want, but I don’t really know when I’ll see him again. I’m a free agent these days. Just waiting for the right opportunity. You know. This is your place, huh? It’s kinda grungy. So, like I said I’m kinda between gigs right now. And, like…funds aren’t flowing, you know?

ARNOLD

I’m confused. Are you trying to mug me?

VINCENZO

Ha, ha, naw, nothing like that. Sorry, I guess I’m not really getting this all out right. I’m just looking for a place to stay.
