I’ve signed up for the 31 Plays in 31 Days project, committing myself to daily playwriting throughout the month of August. The project includes a pre-challenge warmup of 256-(alpha-numeric)-character plays. Here’s my play for July 30:
BARKEEP: What’ll it be?
PATRON 1: Wry. Make it a double.
B: (Smirking) “Love makes the world go wrong.” “Jesus saves; Madoff promises triple-digit returns.”
PATRON 2: I’ll have a white whine.
B: (Querulous) “Why do I have to be in the minority?”
