PLASTIC AND FUEL
Setting: OUTSIDE BY A CAR CRASH
Age range: 25-70
Description: After surviving a car crash with a prostitute, DEVON, tries to calm down his angry wife, Amy.
Ok, Amy, yeah, it looks bad. I know that. It looks bad, but it’s, it’s, it’s—just listen, listen. It’s not really that bad. I mean, it looks like it…but it’s…just a car. Really. When you think about it. Right? Just a car? A bunch of metal and, let’s face it, mostly plastic. I’m driving around in this slab of plastic, so you can’t, I mean, you can’t expect it to go on forever. You know how many of Jack’s toys I have to glue back together? Plastic is crap. Maybe if it were made of steel and, I don’t know, had some sort of fuel that was safer, but really, it’s basically a lit cigarette I’m driving around, just waiting to, I don’t know, be dropped and catch on fire. I’m driving in plastic that always breaks and a walking fire hazard. You can’t blame me. I mean, you really can’t blame me if something happens. You should be more surprised when it doesn’t happen, right? And look. I’m alive. You forgot that when you saw me—let me just go on. You forgot that, because you were distracted by—I don’t know—those other details. CLICK FOR COMPLETE PLASTIC AND FUEL MONOLOGUE.
