The One Card Trick
Setting: Bare stage
(Lights up. Shari enters stage left, Brendon enters stage right - he is holding a single playing card.)
Brendon: Hey, Shari, I just learned a new card trick.
B: Well, I'm not that good at it yet... need to practice.
B: So here goes...
S: Oh, you want to do it now?
B: Right, practice... the card trick.
S: Sure, sure, go ahead.
(moves the playing card from one hand to the other and starts doing pseudo-sleight of hand mannerisms with it, makes a very big show of the whole thing then holds out the card to Shari, face down)
S: What? Was that the trick?
B: Oh, no, (muttering) what's the next step... the, uh... oh yeah... pick a card, any card!
S: Well... uh...
B: Any card.
S: I heard that. So many choices.
B: Go ahead.
S: (takes the card) There.
B: Okay... go ahead and look at it, but don't show me or tell me what the card is.
S: (does so) Right...
B: Now, hand it back.
(She does so. He does magic-type gestures again and then with great flair holds up the card to her.)
B: Is this your card?
B: (crushed) Shit.
S: (with a disbelieving, annoyed sigh) Yes, of course it is!
(he celebrates a little, this dies down, realizes she is not impressed, to say the least)
B: I got it to work!
S: Yeah... woo fuckin' hoo...
S: So.......... that's... that's the trick then?
B: Yeah... sort of...
B: Ummm... could you loan me twenty dollars?
(she shakes her head and leaves, this is a typical thing he would ask her, he stands there looking after her, then at the card)
B: (calling after her) How about if I do the trick right again?
(he walks after her)
