Read full description of the books:
Excellent play. Allow me to gush over the closing paragraphs:
[Context: Trudy, a bag lady and narrator of the play, shows aliens around Earth (or that's what she thinks -- she may just be crazy). They have many goals. One is to define "art", which Trudy tries to illustrate by showing them a can of Cambell's Soup and then the famous painting. "Soup...Art...Soup...Art," she says, but the aliens don't understand. Then she tries to describe what it's like to be human, another goal of the aliens. She tries to explain things like "goosebumps", but again the aliens don't understand. So she takes them to a play.]
"Did I tell you what happened at the play? We were at the back of the theatre, standing there in the dark, when all of a sudden I feel one of 'em [the aliens] tug at my sleeve, whispers, "Trudy look!" I said, "Yeah, goosebumps. You definitely got goosebumps. You like the play that much?" They said it wasn't the play that gave 'em goosebumps, it was the audience!
I'd forgot to tell them to watch the play; they'd been watching the audience! Yeah, to see a group of people sitting together in the dark, laughing and crying at the same things...well that just knocked 'em out! They said, "Trudy, the play was soup, the audience, art."
So they're taking goosbumps back with 'em into space. Goosebumps! Quite a souvenir. I like to think of them out there in the dark, watching us. Sometimes we'll do something and they'll laugh. Sometimes we'll do womething and they'll cry. And maybe, one day we'll do something so magnificent, the whole universe will get goosebumps."
