PLAY #15: THE DIFFERENCE

A deflated tent at the Lima Climate Summit.

Huge, like a fallen cloud.

Drafts of the Lima Climate Action Plan rest in the folds of the tent.

 

CLIMATE and CHANGE (from play #11) are onstage

CLIMATE sits, tries to turn some of the drafts into a blanket.

But the paper isn’t warm enough.

 

CLIMATE tries to makes some of the drafts into a paper boat.

But there isn’t enough paper.

 

CLIMATE rips paper into small pieces.

 

CLIMATE

ah

I lament.

I ache.

 

Meanwhile, CHANGE bounds across the tent.

Picks up pieces of paper and turns them into paper airplanes.

 

CHANGE

I get.

I get!

I get!!!

 

CHANGE sends paper airplanes into the audience, airplane after airplane, until there is no paper for CLIMATE to rip.
