An excerpt …
(The presentation has a rocky start.)
LEN: I was just telling them about …
TERRY: Now? Isn’t this supposed to be a speech contest or something?
LEN: Well? I’m speaking.
TERRY: But the thing we rehearsed. What are you doing?
LEN: I thought they’d like to know something about me before we began.
TERRY: They don’t want to know anything about you. They have no desire to know… they just want to hear our speech.
LEN: (looking at the audience) You mean … you mean they don’t care at all?
TERRY: Not in the slightest. Look at their faces.
(Finally, the scene gets underway.)
LEN: (I am Captain Jean Fonteroy! The blackest pirate what ever sailed the seven seas! (Terry turns around in a single blood-thirsty jump and is about to speak when Len continues) But you know, I have a sensitive side, too.
MICK: (turning) Now what are you talking about?
LEN: I’m just making my character more real….more human.
(Is the audience a prop?)
TERRY: (going to Len and carefully taking his/her hands off the audience member) Look, don’t touch the audience members. I think that makes them a prop and we can’t use props.
LEN: And that is typical! That is just so typical of people like you! Thinking of human beings as props … as … as … things you can just push around to suit your needs!
TERRY: Hey! I’m a nice person! I swear!
LEN: Pawns! That’s all we are to you! Just pawns in this big game of chess that you call your life!
MICK: My mom told me, “Do a monologue. Do a monologue.” But no, I had to sign up for an event so I could be with my friends.
