I PROTEST

An excerpt …

(Protesting is hard work.)

CRIS: Oh. Hello.

ALEX: Hi, there.

CRIS: How you doin’?

ALEX: I’m tired. (puts down placard) I think I’ll sit down a minute.

CRIS: Me, too. Good idea. How’s it going?

ALEX: I don’t know. Some days I wonder if anyone is paying attention.

CRIS: Isn’t that the truth. Most people don’t realize how difficult our job is.

ALEX: What are you protesting?

CRIS: The scourge of big business. Do you realize how the giant corporations are controlling our lives? They control the money, the jobs, the political candidates … everything! We must bring attention to the puppet-like manipulation that these greedy conglomerates are wielding.

ALEX: Oh. Do you work in big business?

CRIS: I used to. One day my boss called me in and told me I was no longer with the company? “How can you do this?” I asked. “I’ve been with the company 7 years. I worked and toiled for the company 7 days a week. You have treated me like a slave. Like a slave! How can you fire me?” “Oh, I’m not firing you,” he said. “I sold you.” (pause) It was his idea of humor. Not so funny.

(Any why are we doing this?)

ALEX: Let me ask you something. If you do convince someone of your cause, so what?

CRIS: (returns to the bench and Alex has to sit up) So what? So what? I’ll tell you what. If we convince enough people then big business will cease to exist. And the power will be returned to the people.

ALEX: What will happen to all the jobs that are lost?

CRIS: The wealth will be distributed because the people will start more businesses.
