PLAY #291: CATASTROPHE (OCT 9)

A tent.

CASSANDRA sits beside CHICKEN-LICKEN.

The sky falls in chunks behind them.

 

CHICKEN-LICKEN

The problem is being a bird

Nobody listens to birds

Even when we feel what’s coming in our flutter.

 

CASSANDRA

The problem is language

Nobody listens when your words won’t make them any money

The problem is that truth needs some sugar to make it palatable

Nobody could understand what I was saying.

 

A huge piece of sky falls with a crash near their tent.

 

CHICKEN-LICKEN + CASSANDRA

The problem is

That there’s no pleasure in being proved when right

When you’re just as fucked as the next person.

 

CASSANDRA and CHICKEN-LICKEN cuddle.

The sky falls.
