Jack And Jill Plays - Part 5 - Dream House

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.



Dream House
by Adam Szymkowicz

(An architect's office.  JACK has entered.  he speaks with ARCHITECT)

JACK
Great, so, thanks for seeing me.  So I want you to design a mansion for me.

ARCHITECT
A mansion?

JACK
Like a small mansion.

ARCHITECT
Okay.

JACK
Like a victorian with flourishes.

ARCHITECT
What kind of flourishes?

JACK
Lots of towers.  An indoor pool.  Tunnels.  Secret passageways.  A moat.

ARCHITECT
A moat?

JACK
Maybe not a moat.  Bushes shaped like dragons.  Large steel sculptures.  And in the backyard, Stone Henge.

ARCHITECT
You want me to draw all that up?

JACK
Yeah.

ARCHITECT
And then, you'll build it.

JACK
Someday.

ARCHITECT
I see.

JACK
When the money comes in.

ARCHITECT
I'm not cheap you know.  Even drawing this up will take a lot of time.

JACK
Okay.

ARCHITECT
Maybe you should pay me before I do it.

JACK
Haven't you ever had a dream?

ARCHITECT
Of course.

JACK
This is my dream.

ARCHITECT
Sometimes you can just dream your dream without going to the drafting table.

JACK
I don't think so.  No.  I don't think so.

ARCHITECT
Or you could draw it yourself.

JACK
Maybe.  But I can't really so I called you.

ARCHITECT
Will it be beautiful.

JACK
Of course.

ARCHITECT
I want to make something beautiful  What about fountains?

JACK
I love fountains.

ARCHITECT
I thought you might. What about a courtyard in the middle of the forest? With café tables and gas lanterns?

JACK
Yes!  How about canals like in Venice.

ARCHITECT
Wonderful!  do you like gargoyles?

JACK
Who doesn't like gargoyles?
