BANG BANG YOU'RE DEAD

(ABSOLUTE DARKNESS. A voice in the dark. After a moment, a flashlight explores the stage, moves along the bottom length, then up, finding Josh asleep on the jail bed. Josh jumps to his feet.)

JOSH

Who's there? Who is it? Who's there? (Michael holds the flashlight under his chin illuminating only his face.)

MICHAEL

Why me?

JOSH

What is this? What is this?

MICHAEL

We played ball together. You were awesome on the field. You were unstoppable.

JOSH

Survival of the fittest, baby.

MICHAEL

And you were only a freshman. You could've been team captain in your senior year. Why'd you kill me? I never hurt you.

JOSH

It was more fun than droppin' dudes in a video game.

(Michael's flashlight goes out. Katie holds her flashlight under her chin.)

KATIE

Why me, Josh?

JOSH

Why not? World's overpopulated. I wanted to do my part.

KATIE

You liked me.

JOSH

Once upon a time.

KATIE

Why'd you have to kill me?

JOSH

Felt like it, okay? Happy now?
