Bang Bang You're Dead
A Play by William Mastrosimone--a resource for dealing with a broken world that's violent, unhealthy, unfair, and beyond the power of anyone to fix except today's generation.
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.)
Who's there? Who is it? Who's there? (Michael holds the flashlight under his chin illuminating only his face.)
What is this? What is this?
We played ball together. You were awesome on the field. You were unstoppable.
Survival of the fittest, baby.
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.
It was more fun than droppin' dudes in a video game.
(Michael's flashlight goes out. Katie holds her flashlight under her chin.)
Why me, Josh?
Why not? World's overpopulated. I wanted to do my part.
You liked me.
Once upon a time.
Why'd you have to kill me?
Felt like it, okay? Happy now?
