Jack And Jill Plays - Part 1 - Purpose


About Jack and Jill Plays:

Today is my 40th birthday.

I'm going to do something new.  Post a short play every day as long as I can.  This does not mean that I wrote this play today but I might have.  (My life is not always my own what with work and a 4 year old running around so maybe I wrote it today or maybe it was stockpiled in preparation for the days I can't get in writing.)  My goal is to do at least 100 of these or maybe more but probably 45 or 50 is the length of a full length play so even that would be good.  100 would be better.  300?  amazing.  500?  Does anyone want 500 of these plays?  Anyway, the goal is consecutive days.

The normal things about plays apply-- don't produce or reproduce this play without my permission.  I wrote it so I own it.  Etc.




Purpose
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK enters carrying a bucket.  He tries to hand it to JILL.)

JACK
Here you go.

JILL
What's that?

JACK
A pail.

JILL
A pail?

JACK
A bucket.

JILL
What's it for?

JACK
We could carry water in it.

JILL
For what?

JACK
I don't know.  Things.

JILL
I'm not going to drink water from your bucket.  I have water glasses.

JACK
Or we could keep things in it.

JILL
Like what?

JACK
All sorts of things.  Nuts and bolts.  Snakes.  Chains.  Water.

JILL
Okay.  Just put it somewhere I won't notice it.

JACK
It'll be really useful sometime.  I promise.

JILL
Yeah, okay.

JACK
What's wrong?

JILL
Do I have a purpose?

JACK
Sure.  Sure you do.

JILL
What is it?

JACK
Oh I bet there are lots of things you do every day.

JILL
Yeah but to what end?

JACK
Like a mission statement?

JILL
Or something.

JACK
We can come up with one.  Come with me.

JILL
Where?

JACK
Up the hill.  I want to fill up this bucket.  Make sure it doesn't leak.

JILL
Okay.  We'll find out what my purpose is.

JACK
Yeah, totally.  We'll both find our purpose.  Purposes.  Purposi.

JILL
No.

(They exit with bucket.)
