Egg on your face
Meg Bash © 2011
All Neos are spread throughout the house, forming somewhat of a circle. Joey is DSC with a carton of eggs, he removes an egg from the carton, presents it and begins by tossing the egg over the heads of the audience to the neo to his right, we will continue to toss the egg around while speaking the text, if an egg is dropped Joey will furnish another egg from the carton and we will resume tossing.
Joey: There are times
Meg: There are times when.
Jacq: When we do or say something.
Kate: Or don’t do or say something.
Adam: And it leads to soul crushing embarrassment.
Marta: You feel like you want to die.
Cecil: And start your life over from the beginning.
Change direction of toss.
Kate: There’s nothing we can do, we are only human.
Adam: Shitty flawed humans.
Jacq: You’d give your left arm just to undo half of it.
All place left arm behind back
Marta: I am sure everyone in this room can relate to that feeling.
Cecil: Your stomach in your throat.
Meg: You just want to hide.
Joey: But we can’t hide or die or undo what is done.
Jacq: So we will share it with you.
We all stop and at the same time share our most embarrassing moment, maybe some are lengthier or louder than others and whoever has the egg at this point will then say to an AM. “I’m sure you’ve been there too” They then will make like they are throwing the egg at the AM but they will hand it to them.
