The Tragedy of DOUG

A Play in Three Acts

Act One

Setting: Early morning. 5:30 am. SCOTT is asleep.

DOUG: Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Food? Food? Hello? SCOTT? Food?

DOUG jumps onto the night stand. Knocks everything off.

SCOTT gets out of bed, staggers to the kitchen. He opens a can of cat food and spoons some into a bowl for DOUG. He goes back to bed.

Act Two

Setting: Early morning. 5:45 am. SCOTT is asleep.

DOUG: Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Out? Out? Hello? SCOTT? Out? SCOTT? Out?

DOUG jumps onto the other night stand. Knocks everything off.

SCOTT gets out of bed, staggers to the dining room. DOUG runs through the dining room to the living room, where he sits in the middle of the floor. SCOTT opens the dining room’s door to the back yard.

DOUG moves a few feet toward the door. Stops underneath the dining room table. SCOTT holds the door open a few seconds longer, making encouraging noises to get DOUG to go outside. DOUG inches a bit closer to the door, but then SCOTT moves slightly back to give him more room. DOUG dives back under the dining room table.

SCOTT: Asshole.

SCOTT shuts the door and goes back to bed.

Act Three

Setting: Early morning. 6:00 am. SCOTT is asleep.

DOUG: Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Hello? Hello? Hello? SCOTT? Out? Out? Hello? SCOTT? Out? SCOTT? Out?

SCOTT remains asleep.
