Black Friday Selfie duologue play for 2 actors

"Black Friday Selfie" by D. M. Larson

A short stage play script for 2 actors

(Nurse with patient. Patient, Penelope, is waking up)

NURSE
How are you doing?

PENELOPE
Still wondering how I survived.

NURSE
It sounded like it was quite an accident.

PENELOPE
I caught it all on video.  I was doing a video when the store opened up… it’s probably the reason I got trampled.

NURSE
Those Black Friday sales are brutal.

PENELOPE
But I uploaded the video and it went viral.  So maybe it was worth it… ow, ow… maybe not.

NURSE
Does anyone know what happened to you?  Do you have any family in town?

PENELOPE
They’re all busy shopping.  I’m hoping they’ll see the video.

NURSE
Oh…

PENELOPE
I will try to call them.

NURSE
I hate to see you in here all alone.

PENELOPE
Hi mom… mom listen… oh… yeah, I was going to go there but… I know the deals are great and I’m missing out but… Okay, mom.

I’ll try Dad.
Dad?  Listen… I… I can’t hear you Dad… where are you?  Why are there monster trucks in the parking lot?  Dad?  Fine, I’ll call you back later.

Maybe I can get my sister… hey, sis… No… no, I didn’t see your TwitFace post yet… what did you buy?  I’ll look later.  Wait, I need to tell you that… but I can’t right now, I am in… no, I’m not trying to be difficult… I’m trying to tell you… what do you mean I never listen to you?  What are you talking about?  Look, this isn’t a good time… fine, I’m going on TwitFace right now.  Bye.

NURSE
That doesn’t sound good.

PENELOPE
They’re a little caught up in shopping right now.
I hate to send them a message… I’d rather tell them in person… but I may have to.

NURSE
Send them a selfie of you in your hospital bed.  That should do it.

PENELOPE
Isn’t that kind of mean?

NURSE
Maybe… but after the way they treated you on the phone, they needed a little jolt of reality.  We can make it look really good too.  I can wrap your head in gauze and…

PENELOPE
I’ll just do a frowny, pouty face.  I don’t want to overdo it.

(PENELOPE does a selfie with a sad, pouty face)

NURSE
If they don’t respond to that, let me know… we’ll do you up good.

PENELOPE
And send…

NURSE
Think that will work.
(phone goes crazy with sounds and alerts)

PENELOPE
They’re on their way.   I’ve totally gotta put my pouty face pic on InstaPin.  People will love it.
