Jack And Jill Plays - Part 33 - See What We Get





About Jack and Jill Plays:

This is a new thing I'm doing.  Posting a short play every day as long as I can.  

The normal things about plays apply-- don't produce or reproduce this play without my permission.  I wrote it so I own it.  Etc.


See What We Get
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK and JILL in a rowboat or a canoe.  They row or paddle.)

JILL
You want to practice?

JACK
No.

JILL
I think you should practice.

JACK
That's okay.

JILL
I Insist.

JACK
I don't want to.

JILL
It'll make you more confident.

JACK
I don't want to be confident.

JILL
Why not?

JACK
I want to be authentic in the moment.  Not fake confident and then they hire me and they'll be like where did that confident guy go that we hired -- now we got this guy.  Better to never be confident.

JILL
Better to get the job.

JACK
Right.  Okay.  That's a fair point.

JILL
Great.  (as interviewer) Nice to meet you, Jack.  Why did you apply for this job.

JACK
I can't do this.  Can we just not?  I want to be unrehearsed.  I want to speak from the heart.  If the job is right it will all work out.

JILL
No.  You need a job.  You make the job right.

JACK
Yeah.  But.  If I try to make stuff up, it'll be bad.  I'll be bad at it.  Better to just say what I'm thinking.

JILL
What are you thinking?

JACK
I'm thinking I don't want this job.

JILL
I know that's what you're thinking.  I need you think think something else.

JACK
Can we just not talk for a while and cast out our lines and see what we get?

(JILL silently agrees.  They both fish.)
