Daily Ceralisation: Dirty Creatures – Ep. 3
Playwright: What’s happening?
Guard B: When I said silent, that also included not talking.
Three short sharp beats are heard down the corridor. The Dictator enters flanked by Guard C and A. He inspects the guards’ handy-work; he notices the books on a makeshift bedside table.
Dictator: Excellent work.
Guards A & B: Thank you Sir.
The Dictator nods to the guards.
Dictator: We’re ready.
Guard A: Sir, yes Sir.
Guard A leaves. Guard C begins to arrange seats outside of the cell. The Dictator sits in his chair and studies the Playwright.
Playwright: What do you want? What’s going on?
Dictator: Relax 2(28) …
Dictator: … 228. We’re not having one of our discussions today.
Playwright: I’m innocent.
Dictator: I said we’re not doing that today.
Playwright: I haven’t been charged with anything, you can’t hold me here.
Dictator: Are you done yet?
Playwright: Where are my family?
Dictator: So we’ve had innocent, charges, family … there’s one more. Well go on say it. You just can’t leave me hanging here.
Playwright: I want to see a lawyer.
Dictator: Thank you. Right, now we can continue. Your moment has arrived 2(28) …
Dictator: 228. You are about to become great.
