Eureka! A one-act play.
Act 1, Scene i
(A brown executive chair, a computer on a table. Office atmosphere - you hear the clack of the keyboard in the background.)
Slowly a laugh rises (villainous) above the general clatter, reaching a crescendo, from the region of the chair. It swivels around and a young (!) woman in a mild-yellow salwar kameez pumps her fists with joy!
" Tee ha ha ha! I fixed the bugger!"
The scene concludes on more villainous laughter...
Act 1, Scene ii
Several curious onlookers turn their heads towards the direction of the laughter. One middle-aged male in a light cream shirt makes bold to ask, " So, who did you fix?!"
Young woman: "Tee Ha HA ha ha! My comments section. That's what I fixed! I don't have to go with Haloscan anymore!"
Gent scratches hair on head. "EH?"
Young woman: "O, it is to do with my blog, you know. I've been trying since yesterday."
Gent: "Uh huh"
Exeunt gent, as puzzled as before.
Act 1, Scene iii
Spotlight on swivel chair. Gently move light upwards to focus on the keyboard in front, showing the young woman's hands. Shift once again onto monitor. Words appear on the screen, open to a blogsite...
"Folks! I'm glad to announce that I finally figured the way to put my blogger comments back on! So all you have to do is to click on the "Make a Comment" link and you'll have aided me in my campaign against Haloscan, the big gyp. Thank you very much and may the Force be with you!"
Young woman reads the screen again and grins to herself. Slowly, the grin expands morphing into a villainous laugh... "Tee Ha ha ha ha..."
She switches off the computer. Turn off spotlight. The stage is completely dark.
Only the laughter rolls on...
