Time of Death…


Brief: Write a play that takes place in darkness, but isn’t an audio drama.


CHORUS:       Beep. Beep. Beep.


PATIENT:      I see only blackness. I dimly recall voices asking me to do things. I remember a red light in my eye , but now I am not certain if my eyes are closed or open. I attempt to blink but I’m not sure I actually did it. Nothing changes.


CHORUS:       Beep. Beep. Beep.


PATIENT:      There is no time. There is nothing but me. I might have been here five minutes or five days or five hours. Time merges. It slips. I cannot catch it.


CHORUS:       Beep. Beep. Beep


PATIENT:      The past and future meld. I hear the soft beeping from Outside, but now I also discern a sort of whirr-click. I hold my breath to try and identify it, and alarms go off.
