Facebooked

In keeping with the Facebook subject...

Facebooked.

Denis and Doris are sitting on a bench, in silence. She is the first to break it. Boys and Girls style, delivered with childish candor.

Doris: Are we friends?

Denis: Yes. Aren't we?

Doris: Yes. (Pause) But, you know, friends?

Denis: We are friends.

Doris: But we're not proper friends. We're not...

Denis: We're not what?

Doris: We're not facebook friends.

Pause.

Denis: I'll facebook you.

Doris: I'd like that.

Denis: You're gonna get facebooked.

Doris: Thanks.

Denis: Me, you, facebook.

Doris: It's a date.

Denis: It's a facebook date.

Doris: Good.

Denis: You wont ever have another date like it.

Doris: I hope so.

Denis: You wont ever have another facebook date like it.

Doris: You're making me blush.

Denis: No-one will facebook you like I'm going to facebook you.

Doris: We should get out of here.

Denis: Facebook wont know what hit it.

Doris: Let's go.

Denis: I'll status you.

Doris: Status me.

Denis: And I'll tag you.

Doris: I can't wait.

Denis: Have you ever been facebooked before?

Doris: No.

Denis: You wont be facebooked again, like I'm going to facebook you.

Doris: No.

Donald enters quietly.

Donald: Doris?

Doris: Donald!

Donald: What are you doing?

Doris: What am I doing? What are you doing?

Donald: Whose this?

Denis: I'm Denis.

Donald: Denis?

Doris: Denis?

Denis: Who did you think I was?

Doris: Donald.

Donald: That's me.

Denis: Donald.

Doris: Not Denis.

Donald: She doesn't know any Denis.

Denis: She does now.

Doris: Hello, Denis.

Donald: Doris!

Doris: Oh, yes. Donald's my boy.

Denis: He's your boy?

Donald: Problem?

Denis: Yes. What am I?

Donald: Gone!

Denis: Okay, okay. I'm gone.

He exits. Donald and Doris sit in silence. He is the first to break it.

Donald: I'll facebook you.

Doris: I'd like that.

Donald: You're gonna get facebooked.

Doris: Thanks.

Donald: Me, you, facebook.

Doris: It's a date.

Donald: It's a facebook date.

Doris: Good.

Donald: You wont ever have another date like it.

Doris: I hope so.

Donald: You wont ever have another facebook date like it.

Doris: You're making me blush.

Donald: No-one will facebook you like I'm going to facebook you.

Lights down.
