A Conversation The stage is in darkness.˜After a few seconds we hear sound of a Skype call, not very loud at first, but the volume increases gradually. The light comes on to reveal a young girl sitting with her back to the audience. She is working at a desk which is covered in books and papers and does not pay any attention to the Skype call. Suddenly, she shakes her head as if waking up from a day-dream, and presses the green reply button. The light goes up on Girl 2, who is sitting on a bed on the other side of the stage. Both are looking at their computers.

Girl 1 (wakes up): Hi!

Girl 2: How are you?

Girl 1: Fine, just finished my first essay.

Girl 2: Oh, nice. I went out on a date last night.

Girl 1: It was on the 'The Rime of The Ancient Mariner.'

Girl 2: He told me I had eyes like a white dove.

Girl 1: It?s about a man who shoots an albatross, with a bow.

Girl 2: He told me my hands were as soft as silk.

Girl 1: I wonder what mark I?ll get?

Girl 2: When he looked me in the eyes...

Girl 1: Now I?ll have start working on the next one.

Girl 2: He even showed me his biceps.

Pause.

Girl 1: I?m so happy.

Girl 2: He told me that I have the beauty of Kim Kardashian.

Girl 1: I have no idea what to write in the next one, though.

Girl 2: He told me his name was Wilfred Wood.

Girl 1: I even handed it in two days before the deadline.

Girl 2: And when he invited me in...He even let me meet his cat.

Girl 1: I will have to work like crazy this year.

Pause.

Girl 2: She?s called Satan. The cat.

Girl 1: Who in world would call their cat Satan? You should see my desk; it?s covered

filled with stuff.

Pause.

Girl 2: She even called me mummy.

Girl 1: Keats, Jane Austen?. I?m not looking forward to the exams.

Girl 2: And when he took me home, he sang ?Kissed by A Rose.?

Girl 1: What if I should fail?

Girl 2: And oh my, the way he kissed.

Girl 1: My tutor hates me.

Girl 2: His tongue was like a storm crashing towards the great white cliffs of Dover.

Pause. Both sigh.

Girl 1: Well, I should be getting on with my work.

Girl 2: I have another date tonight with Wilfred.

Girl 1: I have to be up for a 9 o'clock lecture tomorrow.

Girl 2: I think that he will propose to me. Tonight.

Girl 1: I must get plenty of sleep.

Girl 2: He will propose to me tonight!

Girl 1: I haven?t slept for days.

Girl 2: The diamond will probably be 50 carats.

Girl 1: You haven?t congratulated me.

Pause.

Girl 2: Satan will be the bridesmaid, of course.

Girl 1: I deserve a treat.

Pause

Girl 1: Hang on, someone else is calling me.

Girl 2: We?ll probably get married in the cathedral.

Girl 1: I've accepted his call.

Girl 2: My dress will be amazing.

Girl 1: He has a weird skype name.

Girl 2: Wilfred insisted that I should drink the most expensive champagne last night.

Girl 1: He just asked me out. Wow.

Girl 2: He even paid the waiter money to serenade me.

Girl 1: I?m going!

Girl 2: No one is as lush as Wilfred.

Girl 1: He wants me to meet him at half past eight. By the bus shelter.

Girl 2: Wilfred drives his own bus.

Girl 1: He will be picking me up in his father?s limousine, he says.

Girl 2: Wilfred?s dad owns two limousines.

Girl 1: He really does have beautiful, silky hair.

Girl 2: Wilfred has silkier hair.

Girl 1: His eyes are a perfect shade of blue.

Girl 2: Wilfred?s eyes are bluer.

Pause.

Girl 1: I should choose my outfit for tonight.

Girl 2: My outfit is going to be bright pink.

Girl 1: He probably will kiss me like a storm crashing towards the six o'clock train at Birmingham international station.

Girl 2: I?ll just text Wilfred and ask him where we should meet.

Girl 1: Maybe he?s the one.

Girl 2: Oh, Wilfred says he can?t go out with me tonight after all.

Girl 1: I wonder If I should use my Miss Dior perfume?

Girl 2: I?ll text him back and ask him why he can?t come!

Girl 1: I don?t want to look like Lady Gaga meets Pat Evans from Eastenders.

Girl 2: He says he just can?t...

Girl 1: I must make sure that my makeup is perfect and not a hair out of place.

Girl 2: He just said: No!

Girl 1: I have to look slutty yet classy tonight.

Girl 2: Wilfred doesn?t love me any more.

Girl 1: Maybe I should wear the black dress?

Girl 2: I will not be getting married in the cathedral.

Girl 1: He just asked me if I wanted to go to the St Pierre Restaurant.

Girl 2: No more dates at Yokos.

Girl 1: Oh wait, what about my essay?

Girl 2: Why can?t Wilfred love me, as I love him!

Girl 1: I mean I shouldn?t be going out, I should be working.

Girl 2: I?ll be alone for the rest of my life!

Girl 1: But maybe he can make me happy?

Girl 2: I?ll be living alone in a flat over the fish and chip shop with twenty-three guinea pigs.

Girl 1: What should I do?

Girl 2: I?ll never meet anyone like Wilfred!

Pause

Girl 1: Screw that stupid essay; I?m going to tart myself up.

Girl 2: I bet he has dumped me for someone else.

Girl 1: Wilfred is such a lovely name?

Girl 2: What?
