Jack and Jill Plays - Part 29 - Persistence





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.


Persistence
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK pushes a lawnmower onstage. He pulls the cord to try and start it. It won't start. He pulls again and again and again and again. It doesn't start. He pulls again and again and again and again. This goes on for a long time. Much more time than is reasonable. JANE enters and watches. She exits. She returns with a lawn chair and popcorn. She eats popcorn, watches. Opens a cooler, drinks a beer. He keeps trying. She exits again, carrying a tiny plastic kiddie pool. She exits again. Enters with a hose. She exits again. We hear the water turn on. She sits again, puts her feet in the pool. Sits back. Eats and drinks. All this time, he has been trying to start the lawnmower. After a while he looks up.)

JANE
Beer?

(JACK gets a beer out of the cooler, takes a long drink.)

JANE
What do you think?

JACK
I'm going to keep trying.

JANE
Mmm.

(JACK goes back to trying to start it. JANE watches.)
