Jack And Jill Plays - Part 66 - Pinter Watermelon



Pinter Watermelon
by Adam Szymkowicz

(JACK and JILL at a picnic table eating watermelon.  A MAN enters, sits at the picnic table with them.)

JILL
Um.

JACK
Hi.

(MAN says nothing.)

JILL
Can we help you?

JACK
Are you lost?

(MAN says nothing.)

JACK
Maybe he doesn't speak English.

JILL
Do you speak English?

(MAN says nothing.  Continues to stare at them.)

JACK
Are you mute?

JILL
Are you choking?

JACK
Is someone watching us?

JILL
Are we in danger?

JACK
Maybe he just really likes watermelon.

JILL
Do you like watermelon?

(MAN says nothing.  Slowly, he takes a handgun out and put it on the table.)

JILL
Whoa whoa!

JACK
We can sit somewhere else.

JILL
We'll go.

JACK
We can leave the watermelon.

(JACK and JILL slowly back away.  They leave the watermelon.  MAN whistles.  His friends and family come and sit at the table.  They eat the watermelon.)
