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 today’s play:
CLERK: What can I get you?
GUY: Cigarettes. Carton of Marlboros. And a lottery ticket.
C: Sure. You must be feeling lucky. The odds certainly aren’t in your favor.
G: It’s a 40-million-dollar jackpot. Why not?
C: I was referring to the smokes.
