Jack And Jill Plays - Part 25 - Just Monkeys



About Jack and Jill Plays:

This is a new thing I'm doing.  Posting 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.


Just Monkeys
by Adam Szymkowicz

JACK
Do you remember--

JILL
Can we not talk about it?

JACK
Yeah.  I just thought--

JILL
I'm just not in the mood.

JACK
Right.  Sure.

(Silence.)

JILL
Just think about something else.

JACK
Like don't think about an elephant.

JILL
I never have to stop myself from thinking of an elephant.

JACK
I know.  I mean.  Nevermind.

JILL
I know what you mean.  I just think, why an elephant?

JACK
Maybe because of Hemingway.

JILL
I never have to try not to think of Hemingway either.

JACK
Sometimes I can't stop thinking about monkeys.  Like what if we were monkeys?  Would we get along with the other monkeys?

JILL
I think I'd be a terrible monkey.

JACK
Me too.  We could be terrible monkeys together.

JILL
I love you, terrible monkey.

JACK
You too, chimpy chimparoo.  (Off her reaction.)  No?

JILL
No.

JACK
I'm going to get a job soon.
