  1. EXT.  A SET OF OBJECTS IN VIEW          1

 

A medium size wooden slatted chair, used for   Sitting on outside. A curved wooden screen, partly   frosted. A bunch of swimming woggles, different      colours, tied around with gaffa tape. An old tall  wooden ladder, with a possible history and  wobble.

 

     Three characters emerge. Two begin talking.

 

          Character 1

     Is it hidden ?    

     I’m going to go look.

    

          Character 2

     It doesn’t matter anymore, you know that.

     It’s late.

 

     Character 1 starts to climb the ladder.

     Character 2 follows and puts a foot on the ladder to  stabalise it.

 

          Character 1

     I can’t see it from up here..

 

          Character 2

     Life is full of little components waiting to be  organized.

     I couldn’t see, was he in their?

 

          Character 1

     I don’t doubt there was a reason for being so  passive.

 

     Character 1 climbs down from the ladder.

 

          Character 2

     Give me a reason.

 

          Character 1

     I chose them, because I liked the look of them.
