WHEN IS A NAP JUST SLEEP? BY JEFFREY LO
(DOWNLOAD PDF HERE)
At center is a couch.
Above it is a digital clock.
The digital clock wants to be large.
So large that the audience can read it with no problem.
It reads 6 PM.
Then it reads 6:01 PM.
The door opens.
He puts down his bag.
He takes off his jacket.
He looks at the time.
It reads 6:02 PM.
RANJIT: That’s enough time for a nap before dinner.
RANJIT jumps on the couch.
The clock starts to move fast.
The clock actually turns out to be a person in a clock costume
The person starts to do a dance as the time moves forward fast.
RANJIT fidgets in the couch and yawns.
The clock rushes back to it’s position like the toys in Toy Story when a human enters.
FOUR OFFENDED PEOPLE stand in front of a theatre.
They hold picket signs, protesting a production being done inside.
RANJIT wakes up.
RANJIT looks at the clock.
END OF PLAY.
