An excerpt …

Cast: Boy, Dad, Mom, Teacher, Girlfriend, Tom

This scene may be played by 3-6 characters. The role of “Boy” should be played by a constant actor but the other parts can be divided between two, three, four, or five other actors. The entrances and exits are indicated by the offstage actor simply turning his or her back to the audience.

BOY: I’m a boy. This is my story. (a pause, then) I’m confused.

DAD: Boy?

BOY: Yes, Dad?

DAD: You’re my son.

BOY: I know that, Dad. It’s been like that my whole life.

DAD: And there are certain things I expect from my son.

BOY: Is it a long list, Dad?

DAD: I don’t know. I’m still making it. I’ll get back to you, okay? (He exits.)

BOY: Where would I go? I’m a boy and I’m confused.

MOM: Son?

BOY: Hi, Mom.

MOM: You’re my sweetheart. You know that, don’t you?

BOY: I know, Mom. You always tell me that … sometimes in public.

MOM: I just want you to know, no matter what happens, you’ll always be my little darling. (She exits.)

BOY: I know. That’s the word you shouted at the ballgame last night. “That’s my darling!” It was a moment I’ll never forget. It was beyond confusing.

TEACHER: Do you have your assignment?

BOY: This is my teacher.

TEACHER: It’s due today.

BOY: I sort of forgot.


BOY: Sort of.

TEACHER: No pressure … but your whole life depends on this. (Teacher exits.)
