Vattago

"Vattago is wild and surprising. Cohen tackles a lot and he does so with skill - the loss of faith and meaning, the disconnection between the sexes, the absurdity of work in a capitalist/consumer culture - all within a very compelling, and dangerous, urban fairytale."

- Literary Manager-Actors Theatre of Louisville

The demon, VATTAGO, infiltrates the home and workplace of
Matt Ross, resulting in chaos and death. A comedy.

CAROL: Matt, you don't have to worry. He's a good demon. He leads forces that are outnumbered ten to one to victory, gives you hope when there is none, and the courage to fight for what you believe in.

MATT: What do you believe in?

CAROL: Vattago.

MATT: No. I mean, what do you believe in where you need courage to fight? Are you some kind of revolutionary? I don't understand.

(A beat.)

CAROL: Why do you always do that?

MATT: What?

CAROL: Diminish whatever I do? I have to fight every day. Do you think because you go to work and I stay home--

MATT: No. I don't think that.

CAROL: Matt. I've found something. Something that fills me. It's not what you think.

MATT: And what do I think?

CAROL: You think what any misinformed person would think. I've turned evil. I've sold my soul to the devil to gain wealth and power. That's nonsense! It's not like that at all.

MATT: It's not?

CAROL: Of course not! Matt, demon worshippers are just like everybody else. We love, fight, cook dinner, go to work, school, everything. You don't have to be scared.
