PLAY #222: UNCIVIL SERVICE (JULY 27)

The U.K.

SERVICE, a chorus of civil servants, are in the middle of building a house.

The house is half-finished, a green door, half a roof, open windows etc.

MINISTER OF DASH arrives.

 

MINISTER OF DASH

No no, stop, we’re not going ahead with this plan-

 

SERVICE

What?

 

MINISTER OF DASH

Yes, change of plan, let’s move, we just don’t have the buy-in for solar subsidies anymore.

 

SERVICE

That was your policy.

 

MINISTER OF DASH

Was, indeed. And now a new government, a new year.

 

SERVICE

But what about all these panels?

 

MINISTER OF DASH

I’m sure somebody will want them.

 

SERVICE

And what about all the other schemes?

 

MINISTER OF DASH

Yes, well, let’s just move on, shall we? You can leave the door though, looks nice. Alright, gotta go, plans to make!

 

MINISTER OF DASH rushes off.

SERVICE look around at the unfinished house in despair.
