A Night Out

A Night Out

A Stage Play by Julia

June and Chris have different plans.


(June and Chris sit at a table at Olive Garden. June has a cold.)

Chris: I’m really glad we got to see each other tonight.

June: I am, too. It has been a while, hasn’t it? I’m sorry, school really just gets in the way sometimes.

Chris: Oh, right. How is that going, by the way?

June: It’s going pretty well, I just have a lot of homework.

Chris: I can imagine….how’s the cold?

June: It isn’t too bad, just your average plague. No big deal, I’m sure it’ll be fine when I go home and get some sleep.

Chris: Right. So I’ve been thinking a lot about our future…

June: I think about the future, too. You know, I really need to do well in school if I’m going to be a biologist.

Chris: I know. And you’ll be great at it, I’m sure. You’re brilliant--

June: Thank you, really. And I really appreciate how understanding you’ve been these last few months.

Chris: I do understand, school is important to you, I get that.

June: Right, it just gets kind of overwhelming sometimes. Like for instance, I have this test tomorrow--

Chris: Sure, sure. If we can’t see each other tomorrow, I get it. What’s one day when we’re going to spend the rest of our lives together?

June: Right! And I mean, what’s one night?

Chris: Exactly. So I spoke to your dad the other day"

June: Oh, really?

Chris: Yeah. We were talking about our relationship"

June: Yeah, he seems pretty happy about our relationship.

Chris: He is. So we were talking about where the two of us should go from here…

June: Things are going to be a lot easier when I’m done with school. Biology can be a tough field to break into.

Chris: I’m sure it’ll be easy enough for you, you’ll be a great biologist. And a great mom.

June: Thanks, I hope so. But you know, I really do need to study if I’m ever going to get there.

Again, sorry if this is in the wrong category! Done for a class: Characters with different agendas.

This bit seems to show just how the roles and aspirations of women has shifted. Interesting and I like that ending line
