A very short play by Tbinns
(Scene is in a park . Bill is sitting on the bench reading a book. It’s a bright beautiful spring afternoon, the birds are singing , the sun is warm and welcoming. A young thin, well dressed blonde girl, Becky comes and sits on the Bench. Bill stares a moment while she checks her make up)
BILL: Excuse me, you look familiar…
BECKY: Yeah I get that all the time. I’m a professional Paris Hilton impersonator.
BILL: I’m sorry, you’re a what now?
BECKY: A professional Paris Hilton impersonator. You know at parties and special events…that sort of thing.
BILL: So you make money…
BILL: Doing an impression of someone
BECKY: Uh huh
BILL: Who makes money…
BILL: …for doing nothing.
BECKY: That about sums it up, yes.
(Bill sighs and stands up)
BILL: Well, I’m going to go stick my face in a belt sander until the sweet blessed relief of death comes and washes the stain of North American culture from my deadened soul.
BECKY: OK, have fun, I’m going to watch the Bachelorette on my Ipod..
(Bill leaves, R.E.M’s “The End of the World as We Know It” plays as the lights go down. Curtain.)
