Werewolves

This is the first part of a Duologue I have now published on Amazon.


Werewolves


Scene
Public House. 2012.

Two young men walk away from the bar in a Pub, Craig is carrying a tray of drinks, the drinks are two pints of cider, and ten shot glasses of a green coloured liquid. They sit down either side of a small table for two. Craig is wearing grungy style scruffy clothes, Micky is wearing a smart white dress shirt and black trousers, and is carrying a carrier bag. Both men then start to place the drinks out in front of them on the table. They both drink a shot glass each, and bang the glasses upside down on to the table, then swig some of their cider.

Micky
Beautiful.

Craig
Looking into the air.

Fuck
  
Pause

Double fuck.

Micky
Ignoring Craig, and looking to his right

Look at her.

Craig.
Shit shit, double shit, I have to write a duologue.

Micky
Still ignoring Craig, and still looking to his right.

She is hot.

Leans down and gets a small bottle of vodka from his bag, then quickly pours some of the liquid into his cider.

Craig
 Leaning right into Micky's  face.

You are gonna die, die die die die. Dead, double dead.

Micky
Do you want some?

Craig
Yeah.

Pause.  They both stare at each other with their noses almost touching.


Micky
What’s a fucking duologue?

Craig
It’s a fucking play with two people talking to each other about shit.

Micky
Like The Godfather?

Craig
What?

Micky
The Godfather, De Niro, and Pacino.

Craig
Brando and Pacino. And no that isn’t a duologue you fucking sex crazed fuck, the Godfather had hundreds of actors in it.

Micky
Who were the other actors?

Craig
I don’t fucking know, but it wasn’t a fucking duologue.

Pause.

I was thinking a vampire and a zombie.

Pause. They both lean back in their seats.

Micky
Great idea.

Craig
No it’s not, it’s a shit idea.

Micky
Okay, it’s a shit idea.

Pause

Acting is a shit idea.

Craig
Welding is a double shit idea.

Micky
At least I can weld.

Craig
You won’t win an Oscar for fucking welding.

Micky
I might.

Pause. They then both drink another shot and slam the glasses upside down on to the table.

Craig
Have you ever had an idea?

Micky
No.

Pause.

Yes.

Pause.

No

Craig
What if we get totally pissed tonight, and you help me work on the duologue tomorrow?

Micky
That is why I fucking love you man.

Pause. Then shouts.

WEREWOLVES

Craig
And?

Micky
And, what?
