The Necklace Play
by Tina Clay
Cybil is sitting in a bubble bath with a plastic bag over her head and yellow rubber dish washing gloves on. She's relaxing and singing Moon River when her friend Sara bursts in a sun dress carrying a pillow case. Cybil continues to sing.
Sara: You steal! You steal! You steal! I'm so sick of you coming to my house and filling up your pockets with everything I own. I'm here to get everything you ever took back. There! That's my hairbrush!
Sara takes off her sundress and puts it in the pillow case.
Sara: You are going to die one day soon and I want to be there to see it! And that! That's my necklace!
Sara takes off her bra and puts it in the pillow case.
Sara: I thought you were my friend but you're just a petty thief. There's my clock radio.
Sara takes off her underware and puts them in the pillow case.
Sara: If I wasn't scared to go jail forever, I'd throw this radio into the tub with you and kill you right now! Do you hear me? Do you!
Cybil: I'm sorry. Would like some coffee?
Sara: Oooooo you're the best!
Sara sits down on the toilet and looks at her own leg as Cybil goes to get the coffee.
Sara: I think I'm getting a sore.
Cybil (from off stage): Calamime sweetie. Calamine.
