Unicorns and Alleycats Part 3 free stage play script for school age actors - acting for kids

Unicorns and Alleycats Part 3
a play by D. M. Larson

                       TINK

I still don't know what to do.

                       DUDE

While you're deciding, why don't you enjoy yourself a little.

                       TINK

         (Not seeing anything enjoyable)

How?

                       DUDE

You could rummage through a garbage can...

         (Pantomimes or actually has a garbage can on

         stage)

...and find all kinds of fun stuff to play with.  An old hat.  A scarf.  Some old gloves.  Viola.  A costume to act out any part.

         (Acts out following)

You could play a beggar, a blind man, or a mobster.

         (Shoots a gun)

Rat-tat-tat-tat.

                       TINK

I don't like garbage.

                       DUDE

         (Flinging costume aside and jumping through

         mud puddles)

Try jumping and splashing through puddles.  It's great fun.

                       TINK

I'm wet enough, thank you.

                       DUDE

         (Stops and think a moment)

There are all kinds of things to do in the city.  You could sneak into a theatre and see a movie or a play.

                       TINK

I'm too big to sneak in.

                       DUDE

You could go down to the market and beg for fish.

                       TINK

         (In distaste)

Fish?

                       DUDE

         (Trying to think of something)

You could sneak into a mattress store and sleep away the afternoon...

         (Chuckles)

...or at least until you're caught.

         (Looks at her and sees she isn't responding)

No, I guess not.

         (Thinks)

I know a great spot that overlooks the city.

                       TINK

I'm not into cityscapes.

                       DUDE

You can also watch the sunset.

                       TINK

         (Smiles a little)

That kind of sounds nice.

                       DUDE

         (Excited)

Yes!  A breakthrough!

         (TINK smiles)

There's always the park and the duck pond is fun.

                       TINK

The park might be a neat place.

                       DUDE

See.  There's something.

                       TINK

         (Sadly)

But, it's not home.

         (DUDE sits in frustration and plops face down on

         the ground)

I'm sorry.  I'll try harder.  I'm sure I can like it if I give it a chance.

                       DUDE

         (Sits up)

No, no, no.  It's okay.  Not everyone has to like it.

                       TINK

I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't.

                       DUDE

Look at all the unicorns back home.  They don't like it.

                       TINK

         (Sadly)

Yeah.

                       DUDE

Not everyone was meant to like it here.

                       TINK

It seems like it.

                       DUDE

Well, they're not.  I love cities.  You love nature.  Both are great, but not for both of us.  Love what you have.  It may not be there forever.

                       TINK

I have the city at the moment.  Should I love it?  Or should I love nature which I don't seem to have.

                       DUDE

Whoa.  Hold on a minute.  Don't make things more complicated than they are.

                       TINK

Sorry.

                       DUDE

Don't be sorry.

                       TINK

I'm sorry about a lot of things.

                       DUDE

Well, don't be.  You already love nature, and you don't have to love the city while you're here.

                       TINK

I don't.

                       DUDE

No, of course not.  But, if you feel you have to stay here, look for the good in it.  Enjoy what's here.  There's always the park...

                       TINK

         (Smiles)

And the sunset.

                       DUDE

That's the spirit.

                       TINK

         (Frowns)

I'd still rather be home.

                       DUDE

It's up to you whether you stay or not.

                       TINK

I'm sorry.  I don't mean to tell you all my troubles.

                       DUDE

If it makes you feel better.  Keep talkin'.

                       TINK

Thank you very much.  I do feel better after talking to you.

                       DUDE

Good.  I'm glad to be of service.

         (Hops up on his box)

                       TINK

Will you stay and keep me company?

                       DUDE

         (Throws his newfound scarf around his neck)

Can't.  Gotta go.

                       TINK

What?  You're leaving?



                       DUDE

Got places to go, trash cans to meet...

                       TINK

But, I'll be lonely again.

                       DUDE

         (Goes to her.  Kindly)

I really wish I could stay.

                       TINK

         (Sadly)

I wish you could, too.

                       DUDE

I promise you I'll visit every chance I get.

                       TINK

Thank you.

                       DUDE

You bet.

                       TINK

I wish you could stay all the time, though.

                       DUDE

         (Thoughtfully.  Smiles)

Let me get back to you on that one.  Maybe it would work out for this to be my main haunt.

                       TINK

         (Happily)

That would be wonderful.  I hope it works out.

                       DUDE

         (Smiles)

Ya' know.  I hope it does, too.

                       TINK

Having you here would make this place much more bearable.

                       DUDE

And maybe I might try your nature thing sometime, too.

         (He starts to exit L)

                       TINK

Bye.

                       DUDE

See ya' soon.

         (He exits L.  Only the sounds of the city are

         heard.  TINK is alone.  After watching DUDE go she

         looks around sadly at the city.  Then, she sees a

         mud puddle in front of her)

                       TINK

Puddles.

         (Playfully she splashes through them and skips

         happily off R)

         (Lights fade to black)
