Superhero Support Group Part 9 No More Hairballs free funny one act stage play script for actors

PART 9
Superhero Support Group by D. M. Larson




PART 9 No More Hairballs

CATCHICK
What about you Dogboy?

DOGBOY
Doug.  My name is Doug.

CATCHICK
So how is life... Doug?

DOGBOY
It's been better.  It's not perfect but it's been better.  I'm not living in my parent's basement anymore.  I have a job.  Not a great job but I feel good taking care of myself.  I got so wrapped up in helping others I wasn't helping myself, but now I am.  And I feel better and people are treating me better too.

CATCHICK
Must be nice.

DOGBOY
But I thought you were happy going to the beach, surfing... no more hairballs?

CATCHICK
But I can't swim.  Nearly drowned.  And when I did learn to swim... there was this shark.  Catchick would have had that shark for lunch but as Sissy Jones, I was nearly eaten.

SMACK
Sissy?

CATCHICK
Yes, my real name is Sissy.  I hate it.

SMACK
My real name is Marvin.  The name Marvin strikes fear in no one.

DOGBOY
So you both miss being Supers?

SMACK
I miss being special.

(Shade appears from behind the chairs.)

SHADE
Then be super again.

(Dogboy and Smack jump up in surprise.)

DOGBOY
You're still hiding?

SHADE
I'm trying to bring down the doctor and her evil plan to rid the world of Supers.

CATCHICK
But we're not Supers.  We're all a bunch of nut jobs.

SHADE
That's what she wants you to think.

(Doctor enters.  Shade hides.)

DOCTOR
Thank you all for coming to the support group today.  We'll meet out here today.  Have a seat everyone. I want to all talk together so we can help each other.

(Doctor and others put chairs in a half circle.  Shade's hiding spot is revealed.)

DOCTOR (COnt.)
Please join us, Jack.

SMACK
Jack?  Dang... cool name.

SHADE
I am the Shade!

DOCTOR
Jack here hasn't been through the same therapy as the rest of you.  You have to be willing to change for the therapy to work, but I was hoping if he saw how well the rest of you were doing, then he'd be convinced this is for the best.

SHADE
You'll never defeat me, Doctor.  Never!

DOCTOR
Then you won't mind sitting and listening if you have nothing to fear.

SHADE
Fear?  I'm not afraid.

DOCTOR
Prove it.  Sit.

(Shade reluctantly joins the others in the half circle and sits.)
