A Ten-Minute Play

by

Scott C. Sickles

Cast of Characters

Paul FISHER: 30s, Bloom's ex
Jared BLOOM: 30s, Fisher's ex
PAUL Fisher: FISHER in his 20s, Jared's spouse
JARED Bloom: BLOOM in his 20s, Paul's spouse

Note: The actors playing FISHER and PAUL should resemble each other.
The same should be true of BLOOM and JARED. The two pairs should also
be easy to differentiate from each other. (e.g. FISHER/PAUL are tall
with dark hair and BLOOM JARED are shorter with red hair.)

Scene
A public restaurant and a private bedroom.

Time
Five years after and seven years during their marriage.

QUEENS FROM A MARRIAGE by Scott C. Sickles was originally presented by
Pyramid Productions (Ted Hoover and Melissa Martin, producers) in its
No-Doze Dozen marathon of ten-minute plays at the City Theatre Lab in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on July 23, 1993. It was directed by Ted
Hoover. Art Manion was the stage director. The cast, in order of
appearance, was as follows:

Paul FISHER Brian Czarniecki
Jared BLOOM Michael James
PAUL Fisher Jamie Pickett
JARED Bloom John Highberger

SETTING: Up stage, two chairs behind a table. Down stage, sheets and
pillows set up to represent a bed. A prop phone should be placed under
the pillows.
AT RISE: PAUL and JARED are in bed, under covers. FISHER and BLOOM sit
in their seats. Lights fade out on PAUL and JARED.

FISHER
Thanks for meeting me.

BLOOM
Well, it's been awhile.

FISHER
I heard about you and� the train guy. I'm sorry.

BLOOM
Don't be. He was a while ago. You haven't kept very good tabs on me.
Which is fine. Last time we spoke, you were seeing that window
dresser. He seemed nice.

FISHER
He was. Very cheerful. We split a few months ago. All that sunshine
got on my nerves. I guess I was used to your�

BLOOM
Incessant bitching?

FISHER
Individual perspective. You've lost weight.

BLOOM
Thanks; you're aging well. Sorry. I get a little catty when you're on
my mind. Not that it happens that often. Sure, every day, but for
shorter periods of time, usually in public rest rooms for some reason.

FISHER
When it does, what do you think about?

BLOOM (staring at Fisher's crotch)
Nothing specific.

FISHER
I remember things that made you smile: holding hands in movie
theatres, falling asleep together on the divan, that spot behind your
knee--

BLOOM
Before you go on, let's focus on the positive. What about me do you
miss the least? I usually start out missing you and then convince
myself I shouldn't.

(Lights cross fade to JARED and PAUL.)

PAUL
Why do we have to rush this?

JARED
I'm not the one who wants to end this marriage; I'm simply the reason
you want to. I'm willing to try fixing this--

PAUL
Oh, please. All you ever do is bitch about how aloof I am. It never
occurs to you that after seven years, I might need--

JARED
If you say "need some space," the clich� police will force me to kill
you. You can have all the "time apart" you need to "find yourself,"
while I hang myself with one of your old trick's jock straps.

PAUL
After all that, what can I say?

JARED
Try "goodbye."

(Lights cross fade to FISHER and BLOOM.)

FISHER
Maybe this was a bad idea. I just thought� I wanted to see if there
was�

BLOOM
"�anything left between us?" Oh, please. Seven years isn't adequate
trial and error? Could we talk about something else? I'm sensing
countless hours of insurance-funded therapy going up in flames.

FISHER
I hoped we could see more of each other to find out if we wanted to start seeing each other again. Then maybe�

BLOOM
You're hopeless. I will tell you, though, I don't only remember bad things. But, my feet stay bolted to the ground.

(Lights cross fade to JARED and PAUL)

JARED
I'm floating on air. My father didn't ask which one of us was the bride. The pastor was cute. You were dashing, dapper and another appropriate word that starts with "D." The room is elegant. The night is wonderful. Everything is perfect. What's on TV?

PAUL
Are the strawberries and champagne supposed to be romantic or an
aphrodisiac?

JARED
As if we needed an aphrodisiac. I don't know. They're sweet. Like you. Oh, puke, I said it. That's it. One "cornyism" per day until the honeymoon is over, and then no more forever. That only pertains to me, of course. You're going to be corny for the rest of our lives.

PAUL
Do you mind?

JARED
I'll get used to it.

PAUL
I mean staying together that long. I know it's a little late to bring
this up, but I have lots of plans for us.

JARED
Cape Cod house? White picket fence? A very hyper Shih-tzu puppy named
Rommel?

(PAUL and JARED kiss.)

(Lights cross fade to FISHER and BLOOM.)
