SHORT PURIM PLAYS
Purim Monsters, Inc
Monsters collect screams for the Scream Gragger by sneaking into children’s rooms, scaring them and collecting their screams. One Purim all the collected screams are missing. They investigate the problem. Upon entering one girl’s room they scare her, but nothing happens. They then realize her mouth is taped shut. Who is taping shut the mouths of children to prevent them from screaming? It turns out to be Namah. Why was Namah doing this? Namah, spelled backwards, is Haman. Namah is a descendant of Haman and is tired of everyone disliking him/her and booing him/her. The solution—Namah is told to boo at Haman’s name, too. That makes Namah very happy and everyone has a screaming good time.
