Photocopier 2

(Scene. A small photocopier room. Sounds of copying. Copier is actually off stage right. Lights up on Sam and Stuart)


Sam: You know, I often think that life is a bit like a photocopier..


Stuart: Yes. You mean, a places of images – a playground for truth or fakery?


Sam: Not really.


Stuart: A micro-world of potential where what you get out depends on what you put in?


Sam: Not at all…


Stuart: A creative place of awesome possibility where you can create different versions of whatever you choose.


Sam: No!


Stuart: The toner is the mood, the machinery, the limiting enabling structure, the electricity the energy needed to power the processes…


Sam: No, no, no!


Stuart: A post-modern metaphor of culture and self-realisation…


Sam: No! What are you going on about?


Stuart: Well, what then? Why is life like a photocopier?


Sam: It always goes fucking wrong!


(she bursts out crying. Lights)
