Great Good OK Poor


"This short piece does stir the imagination."--Stephan Long, Santa Fe

"Honest, curious, and engaging ... the characters stood in the gulf between this world and enlightenment."--Arthur Brown, New Life News

"This play is so funny!"--Guillermo Ramon, animation artist


Patricia's--Pat's--apartment is ill and scantily furnished. Her metal framed bed is pushed against the wall, neatly made, piled with pillows, and does double duty as bed and sofa. Pat sits on her bed eating peanut butter cups and reading. Her hair has retained the same flaxen color which had enticed a horse to follow her through a meadow and nibble on her hair when she was four. She wears clean, but immensely faded jeans, and a long sleeved top which has been laundered so many times that it has become utterly nondescript in color. Her sneakers and several pairs of socks are on the floor in front of her. Pat, obviously, is a bad dresser and very poor.

Pat's Bed

Do you read me? Do you read me?

--

(Pat, engrossed in her book, doesn't hear.)

--

Pat's Bed

Come in. Come in!

--

(Pat unwraps another peanut butter cup and picks up her book again.)

--

Pat's Bed

Do you read me? Do you read me?

--

(Pat stares at the book in her hands. She turns it over.)

--

Pat's Bed

Do you read me?

--

Pat

(Astonished) Yes, I do. You're very good.

--

Pat's Bed

Captain, did you hear that!

--

Pat

Who is that?

--

Pat's Bed

Captain, we have made contact!

--

Pat

(Grabbing her head with her hands.) I'm hearing things!

--

Pat's Bed

Earthling?

--

Pat

No more pot ... I'm flipping out.

--

Pat's Bed

Hello? Hello?

--

Pat

Maybe it's something I ate. I'm trying to read my book.

--

Pat's Bed

Can you hear us Earthling? Can you read us?

--

Pat

Who's got the sense of humor?

--

Pat's Bed

Please, we are trying to establish contact.

--

Pat

(Amazed) Hey, it's coming through the bed.

--

Pat's Bed

But Captain, earthling's beds are not equipped with receivers. Let me handle this. Earthling, would you tell us your name?

--

(Definitely two voices emanated from the bed.)
