Excerpt (Sample)

Setting: Lance, Marla, Rhonda and Jill are looking around the stage trying to find something.  Sheila and Kat sit off to the side or on the ground, looking bored and tired. 

Sheila:             How long have we been at this? 

Lance:             About an hour. 

Kat:                  Are you guys ready to give up yet? 

Marla:              Not me.  I’m going to find those keys. 

Rhonda:            Me too.  They’ve got to be here somewhere. 

Sheila:             But we’ve looked like a hundred times and there isn’t anything here! 

Kat:                  I say we give up. 

Rhonda:          We can’t quit. 

Sheila:             Why not?  There’s obviously nothing here. 

Jill:                   It’s important we find those keys. 

Sheila:             Why? 

Jill:                   Because Joe and Terri said it was important. 

Kat:                  Why should we listen to them? 

Sheila:             Yeah, who are they to tell us what to do? 

Lance:             They run this place, remember?  If we want a job here, we have to do what they say. 

Marla:              If you guys would get up and help us look, maybe we could find them faster. 

Kat:                  I don’t think those keys even exist.  If they did, we would have found them by now. 

Rhonda:          You mean we would have found them by now.  

Kat:                  Excuse me? 

Rhonda:          It just seems like we’re the ones doing all the searching while you two sit there complaining. 

Sheila:             We did our share of searching.  It’s not our fault we couldn’t find them.  If they even existed in the first place. 

Lance:             Why would the lifeguards have us looking for something that didn’t exist? 

Kat:                  To torture us.
