A short play today

Look out, my friends, over the bleak winter months before us. Oh the chill in the air.

Wait! It's 50 degrees? Thank God for the Climate Crisis.

I seek inspiration. I shall write a posting length play today (about 1-2 pages total). What I need are suggestions from you, my peers, readers and friends.

Give me a title or a line or a subject or a character name. Something. I'll try to integrate as much as a I can.

What posting length play shall I write by... 5pm today?

Your own death. Particularly if you die from something stomach-y.

Not nearly enough drama occurs in laundromats.

Also, someone should really address the worldwide allergy crisis. Two pages should be ample.

Mac said...

Title for allergy crisis play: SIX SNEEZES FOR SISTER SARAH.

Line of dialogue: "We gotta get these people ouf of here! The allergy crisis will be here any second!"

I think it should feature an unreliable narrator. A narrator who lies, or has an agenda that necessitates us perceiving a series of events in a certain way.

Me, for instance.
