A Play A Day #100

The Daddy Chair

Daughter (played by girls of increasing age and size)

Setting: Armchair, ottoman.

(Dad is seated, wearing a cardigan, tan pants, socks, reading paper. Two year old girl wanders onto stage, climbs into chair, leans back against her dad, closes her eyes. Father switches paper to one hand, reading it the whole time, to accomodate his daughter. Lights out. Lights up. Dad has different cardigan on, three year old daughter enters, same sequence. This continues with the daughter getting older and/ or bigger each time, until daughter comes out in wedding dress, sits on father, lights out. Lights up. Older woman comes out.)

Mom: Dear! She's had the baby! It's a girl! They'll visit as soon as she's able... probably next week.

Dad: (looking at wife, looking around, broad smile) Perfect.

(lights out)

Nice. 100 plays. 3rd goal reached. Let's shoot for four months now.

Sounds good, Bleeet.
