BLANKETS BY JEFFREY LO (DOWNLOAD PDF HERE)
Lights up on an empty stage.
A pistol falls from the sky with a WHAM!
A shotgun falls from the sky with a WHAP!
A sniper rifle falls from the sky with a BOOM!
An automatic assault rifle falls gently from the sky and makes no sound.
The sound of footsteps.
ERN looks at all of the guns in front of him.
ERN opens his mouth.
ERN cannot speak.
ERN does not know what to say.
ERN still cannot speak.
ERN stares at the guns in front of him.
They won’t go away.
ERN re-enters with a big blanket.
ERN with great fear, places the blanket over the guns, covering them.
ERN looks at the blanket on the ground.
ERN looks around.
ERN tentatively exits.
The sound of gunshots everywhere.
END OF PLAY.
