a one scene script
"Scene at a Pink-skied Planet 2" by Bill Schott

The scene opens under a large tent. There are two men at either end of the tent; one is standing and one bent into a sitting position though no chair is evident. The sky in the background is pink and the rest is sand.

Butch1: This awning seems to be doing the trick.

Butch2: Can it pull a rabbit out of a hat? I'm still hungry.

Butch1:  It's good we found it when we did. This solar radiation was messing with our identities.

Butch2: Anything left of the bunny?

Butch1: I saved a foot for good luck, ears, in case we need better reception, and its hide.

Butch2: There's only one item you mentioned that makes any sense at all.

Butch1:  Rabbit's foot?

Butch2: No. The hide. 

Butch1: Make a warm hat?

Butch2: I was thinking-- tea cozy.

Butch1: Oh? We have tea?  

Butch2: We have a tea cozy.

Butch1: I wonder if there's tea on the ship?

Butch2:  We have a ship?

Butch1: Sure. Well, we must have a ship. We had to come here some how.

Butch2: Where are we?

Butch1: Under a tent.

Butch2: Why are we here?

Butch1: Who are we?

Butch2: To what degree or extent are we?

Butch1:  By the way; what are you sitting on?

Butch2:  An imaginary chair.

Butch1: How is that possible?

Butch2: You use your imagination. 

Butch1: How about imagining us home?

Butch2: I'm afraid I am.
