Jack And Jill Plays - Part 3 - Snake


About Jack and Jill Plays:



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.



Snake
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JILL stands over a dead snake holding a shovel.  The snake is in two pieces.)

JILL
Jack!!  Ja-ack!

(JACK enters.)

JILL
I killed this snake.

JACK
I see.  Was it--

JILL
I didn't like how it was looking at me.  Is there a rattle?

JACK
It's a-- I think it's a garter snake.

JILL
It looks poisonous.

JACK
Maybe.  I don't know.  We can look it up.

JILL
You could make boots out of it.  Don't people make boots out of snakeskin?

JACK
I'm no cobbler.

JILL
Or like a fanny pack or something.

JACK
Sure.  Maybe.  Or maybe we just chuck it out back.

JILL
It's fresh.  We could eat it.  Wanna look up how to cook it?

JACK
No, I don't want to do that.  My brother was arrested.

JILL
Oh.

JACK
Again.  Drugs.

JILL
I'm sorry.

JACK
It's fine.  I'm going to go back inside.

JILL
Should I cook this?

JACK
Please don't.  I'll make pasta.

JILL
Okay.

JACK
Or something.  I'm glad the snake didn't hurt you.

JILL
Me too.

JACK
Come inside?

JILL
In a bit.

(JACK exits.  JILL looks at the snake.)

JILL
Not today, snake.  Not today.
