Jack And Jill Plays - Part 34 - Birthday





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.


Birthday
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK at a table, glum.  Enter JILL carrying a cake.)

JILL
Happy Birthday!

JACK
Thanks!  Yeah.  Thanks.

JILL
You're old.

JACK
I'm old.

JILL
So you gonna have a mid life crisis now?

JACK
Thanks for bringing that up.  I've been thinking about that a lot actually.  Should I start a motorcycle gang?  Change my hair?  Dress young?  Pierce my eyebrow?    And I decided after a lot of thought not to do anything.

JILL
No?

JACK
No.  I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing until I die.

JILL
It sounds like you've given up.

JACK
Yeah.  I -- maybe yeah.  But why change?  It won't make a difference.

JILL
I got a tattoo.

JACK
You did?  Let me see.

(She shows him.)

JACK
Oh.  Yeah.  Look at that.  That's cool.

JILL
You want to get one?

JACK
No.  I don't know.  No.  Maybe.  No.  Maybe a dump truck.

JILL
A dump truck?

JACK
On my arm.

JILL
A dump truck?

JACK
You're right.

JILL
I mean maybe.

JACK
Let's just eat the cake.

(JILL hands him a fork.  He begins to eat the cake.)
