Don’t Leave Me Without Muffin

Don’t Leave Me Without Muffin is a new play (one-act) that deals with addiction, love and misunderstanding between a father, son .

ARASH: I’m not drunk, Mom. I’m awake, wide awake. I see things very clearly. I see what you did to me growing up and how you left me to fend for myself. You don’t remember, do you? All those times I had no choice but to walk into town and search through garbage containers and dumpsters in parks, just so I could eat.

If I never did that I would have starved to death, just like beverly hills people. Well,they didn’t starve, they died cause he was too young to take it…right?

This whole life, I am done! I am done thinking that one day it can change. The only real change that will ever happen is if I make the change myself and I am LEAVING!

No more bumping into random girls in our kitchen during the middle of the night. No more sleazy smells from all the booze they’ve been doing. No more waiting for a smile, a look, something, anything that tells me you see me.

You never cared about me. You selfish, waste of life, you only cared about me if it served you well in some way. Whenever I’m no use to you, I disappear from your mind.

And now I’ve disappeared for good. You can keep your life. I want no part of it.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
