AM/PM BY JEFFREY LO (DOWNLOAD PDF HERE)
NEIRY enters her apartment.
She puts her bag down and quickly plops herself onto her couch in exhaustion.
NEIRY picks up her phone to set her alarm.
NEIRY (as she yawns):8 AM wake up call…
NEIRY sets her phone down and collapses into the couch cushion.
Five seconds pass.
Suddenly – BLACKOUT.
Lights slowly rise but actually stay pretty dim.
NEIRY: Oh gosh, already? My alarm already? How?
NEIRY picks up her phone and turns off the alarm.
NEIRY spots something on her phone.
Her heart jumps.
Her heart starts pumping.
NEIRY: Huh. What? How? What? Are you –
NEIRY jumps out of the couch.
NEIRY pulls up the clock app on her phone.
NEIRY: FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK. It’s 8 PM!?
NEIRY collapses back onto the couch.
END OF PLAY.
