An excerpt …
(Characters: Weegee, Bailey and Cruz. Bailey and Weegee should be played by girls, but Cruz can be either male or female with a few little tweaks to personal pronouns.)
BAILEY: (entering with Cruz) This is ridiculous. I can’t do this.
CRUZ: Of course you can do it.
BAILEY: What if it doesn’t work? What if people find out? Everybody’s gonna laugh.
CRUZ: Nobody will even know, Bailey.
BAILEY: I’ll bet she’s a fake. Have you tried it?
CRUZ: I don’t need it. You do.
BAILEY: But it sounds so spooky … What’s her name?
CRUZ: Weegee. I hear she’s really good.
BAILEY: And she sees into the future? She can tell your fortune?
CRUZ: That’s what everybody says.
CRUZ: Well, there was this ad in the paper.
BAILEY: An ad in the paper? You got her number from a stupid ad in the newspaper? I’m not buying a used car, Cruz! This is my life at stake here! Look, let’s just go hang around the mall. I feel ridiculous going to a fortuneteller.
CRUZ: Come on, Bailey! Just give it a chance! Please? I’m your best friend. I’m just trying to help you. (looking around) This looks like the place. Yeah … that’s the right address. Go ahead and knock.
BAILEY: You do it. I feel silly enough. What if you open the door and bats start flying out?
CRUZ: Then duck. Okay, here goes … (knocks on an imaginary door)
WEEGEE: (opening the door quickly) Who are you?
BAILEY: We’re outa here.
BAILEY: If she was a real fortune teller she’d know who we were.
WEEGEE: You have come to know your future!
CRUZ: I told you!
