THE BUSTED WIDGET

Duet - Comedy, by Ken Bradbury, 2016

An absurd saga of hapless Micah who simply returns to the Widget Store to have his faulty widget replaced. But the problem is that in every department of the store visited, behind every door opened, is what seems to be the same employee, but it’s not! Or is it?

An excerpt …

For two characters of either gender - Micah and Logan. Logan is busy straightening his counter, arranging items on shelves, etc. as Micah enters.

LOGAN: Good morning!

MICAH: Hi.

LOGAN: Welcome to Widgets Unlimited! May I help you?

MICAH: Well … yes. I bought this yesterday.

LOGAN: A widget?

MICAH: Yeah. A widget. I bought this widget here yesterday and when I got it home it didn’t work.

LOGAN: Oh, I’m sorry. When did you break it?

MICAH: I … uh … I didn’t break it. It just doesn’t work.

LOGAN: An unworkable widget?

MICAH: Yeah … unworkable. It doesn’t work.

LOGAN: Again, I apologize. It’s our goal at Widgets Unlimited to have nothing but satisfied customers. I assure you that we’ll take care of it. (takes the imaginary widget from Micah) Looks okay.

MICAH: Yeah, I thought so, too. But it doesn’t work.

LOGAN: (pushes something on the item) You’re right. What kind of widget did you buy?

MICAH: What do you mean?

LOGAN: Was it a Wee Widget or a Wonder Widget?

MICAH: I didn’t know there was a difference.

LOGAN: Oh my, my yes. Widgets have come a long way.

MICAH: It’s for my mother, actually. She collects widgets.

LOGAN: Really?

MICAH: Yeah. All her life. Whenever she got enough spare cash together she’d buy another widget. She even has some of the old ones … without the electric cord.

LOGAN: Amazing. I’ve never seen one of those. My grandfather had a coal-operated widget but that was a long time ago. Look, you’ll need to take this next door to our Department of Returned Widgets.
