2 one minute plays

because what else can you do with a one minute play after it's been performed except put it on the internet.

 
WEIGHT
By Adam Szymkowicz

A BIG PERSON is getting a piggyback from a LITTLE PERSON.

LITTLE PERSON
We have to stop

BIG PERSON
One more time.

LITTLE PERSON
I will break

BIG PERSON
I am the broken one.

LITTLE PERSON
I know but

BIG PERSON
I am the broken one. You saw I was destroyed by circumstances and life and mental illness and addiction and love and you picked me up and dusted me off. And you lifted me up.

LITTLE PERSON
I can only do so much.

BIG PERSON
Just a little more.

LITTLE PERSON
No but.

BIG PERSON
I just need a little more.

LITTLE PERSON
Who will fix me when I break?

BIG PERSON
Someone will come along.

LITTLE PERSON
No.

BIG PERSON
Someone.  Onward!

LITTLE PERSON
Ow.

LITTLE PERSON carries BIG PERSON off in the direction they were going.



MEME
By Adam Szymkowicz

A
I don’t understand.

B
I’m going off the internet.

A
What do you mean?

B
I’m not doing it.

A
You mean facebook?

B
Yeah.

A
Twitter?

B
Yup.

A
Not Instagram?

B
Everything.

A
I mean, you can’t do that.

B
It’s all just me me me.

A
It’s pronounced meme.

B
It’s a waste of my time and energy.  I’m going to do things instead.

A
I don’t understand.

B
I’m not judging you or anything.

A
You’ll come back though, right?

B
I doubt it.

A
We’ll fall out of touch.

B
No we won’t.

A
I’ll forget about you.  Maybe still think of you now and then and wonder what you’re up to but then less and less until I stop thinking about you at all.

B
That’s crazy. 

A
Is it?  Your shoe is untied.

B bends to tie shoe.  A exits.  B looks up after tying shoe but A is gone.

B
Hello?  I’m still here.
