SMACKIN’ THE MONKEY

A park bench upstage center. A path runs across the stage in front of the bench. Jim and Robbie are old actors out of work, trying to keep in practice. Jim is sitting on the bench and appears lost in thought. Robbie enters right on the path and sits down next to him. Jim looks up startled.

ROBBIE

(James Cagney gangster accent)

We’ll make this quick and easy friend. I need money. You got money. Gimmie!

JIM

Why should I gimmie anything to you?

ROBBIE

Because if you don’t, you gonna die.
