Jack And Jill Plays - Part 4 - Run


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.

(JACK is freaking out.  JILL enters.)

JACK
AAAahgh!

JILL
What?

JACK
I'm freaking out!

JILL
What is it?

JACK
What if I never amount to anything my whole life and it's all just a waste?

JILL
What do you mean?

JACK
I'm a failure.

JILL
Yeah but we all are.

JACK
What?

JILL
Everyone you know is a failure, right?

JACK
I know some people who aren't.

JILL
You don't know them that well though.  It's fine.  It's okay to be a failure.  Now.  Tomorrow.  For a while.  It won't be forever, probably.

JACK
But it could be.

JILL
Well you won't know for a while so relax.  Things could get worse.

JACK
I guess.  Yeah.  I guess. I just want them to get better.

JILL
Are you doing anything about that?

JACK
No.

JILL
Do one thing.  Just one thing.  Today.

JACK
Yeah.  I could do that I bet.  One thing.

JILL
Good.

JACK
Why do you have such a handle on this? You should be freaking out too.

JILL
Yeah, I know.  It's just that I ran a mile and I did it pretty fast so I feel pretty good about myself.

JACK
Should I do that?

JILL
No, don't do that.  You'll just fall on your face and then you'll feel worse.

JACK
Yeah.  You're right.
