Twitter plays, part CLXXII
It’s Twitter Plays CLXXII! This week’s assignment was: write a 1-tweet play that takes place in a DARK ALLEY.
Here are your plays starting with @TheaterJoneswho just wrote my biography.
Man in 60’s emerges from shadows in DARK ALLEY with tube of red lipstick, trailed by cat. Approaches woman, says “I found your lips”
[Open on a bowling alley. The lights go out.] A: How are we gonna play now? B: More importantly, how are we going to find our shoes?
a PHOTON walks down a dark alley & stops when he hears a VOICE. VOICE: gimme a light. PHOTON: i don’t smoke. VOICE: not what i asked.
Batman and Perp “Where are they?” “Right there.” Perp points stage left lights upon two guys mugging an old lady. “Oh, thank you”
2 from @mightytoycannon:
Dark. We hear footsteps. Match flare briefly illuminates man w/ cigarette. Flash/bang of gunshot. Thud. [Intermission]
A: I’m scared. B: Why do you assume dark alleys are dangerous? A: Aren’t they? B: Not always. [Unicorn emerges from dumpster] See?
DARK ALLEY pre-dawn. MAN (raises knife): come on, give it up. YOUNG MAN: i swear! i have nothing! (MAN starts, is blinded by sunrise)
A rat rustles a plastic bag. Two cockroaches make love in the shadows. Footsteps. A cigarette hits the pavement, still burning.
2 kids are playing catch. One misses the ball, it rolls into a DARK ALLEY. One says, “You get it”. The other says “You, first.”
